During this week we worked on our observational, sketching and collage skills.
The whole school looked at architecture as our theme for this year, while in Year Two we focused on Doors.
We began the week by going for a walk around New Romney to look at all of the different styles of doors we could find. The Children took photos of them, then it was back to school to sketch the different doors we had seen. We moved on to looking at artists, especially Henri Matisse and his approach to art. We created some artwork using his methods, looking at techniques, colours and shapes.
Our final piece was a door each, where the children used materials they’d collected at home and at school to recreate one of the doors we found on our walk.
The children did a fantastic job and we can’t wait to share them properly in a gallery format later in the term!
