This week Year One have thoroughly enjoyed being artists in the classroom. They have practised drawing a variety of lines, using a pencil – straight, wriggly, curved and zig zag and then transferred these skills to painting different lines. Also the pupils have learnt how to mix primary colours to make secondary colours. They carried out an investigation to make different shades of orange, green and purple. Finally, we learnt about the artist Wassily Kandinsky and studied his painting of squares with concentric circles. Everyone had a go at recreating a painting in the style of Kandinsky. Some of the children were even brave enough to mix primary colours on their picture. We have decided that we all have a budding artist inside of us.
