This year, I have had the pleasure of teaching my class Art. Previously, this has been a subject taught during my release time. However, I have been able to share my passion for the Art curriculum this year.
We have explored the following styles of Art so far: Pastels, Fauvism and Cubism. We have studied a range of influential Artists such as Odilon Redon and Pablo Picasso.
A firm favourite from Pine class so far is ‘Fauvism’ (coming from the French phrase Les Fauves meaning ‘Wild Beasts’).
Below, Luca, outlines key features of Fauvism.
Here is Livvy and Ishbir’s Fauvist final piece:
Here David I has explored ‘expanding the image’ for a Cubist piece:
Below Rida has captured the dramatic scenes of ‘The Great Fire of London’ skyline. The layering and use of pastel techniques is very powerful and evokes a strong emotional response:
When the Creative Arts lead, Miss White and Headteacher, Mr Mynott spoke to Y2, they were very impressed with their confidence and positive attitudes towards their learning in Art. They also were pleased to see the progress and learning journey we have been on as a class.
Mr Beach was so impressed with the aspiring Artists that he has made an ‘Art Gallery’ in Pine class to celebrate the children’s work.
Well done Year 2 for excellent work in Art!
