Art at Ermington Primary School

Autumn Term 2016

Welcome to Mrs Cloke’s Art Blog.

The children in Ermington School create such wonderful art work during their art sessions; I felt it would be a good idea to share pictures of the creative process and not just seeing the magnificent end result.

The school as a whole have studied European Artists in the first term.

Year 3 children created the French artist, Henri Matisse, cut-outs. We used collage and oil pastel-resist to paint versions of his ‘The Goldfish’ painting…. what wonderful results they achieved.

Year 4 focused on Spanish artist Pablo Picasso. We studied his unusual style of portraiture…they produced fabulous layered oil pastel portraits with etched through the layers to create pattern.

Key stage 1 learnt the primary colours whilst looking closely at Dutch artist, Piet Mondrian. His geometric line and colour work inspired our own versions using our own painted paper. Year 2 created Mondrian pin wheels to represent the windmills of Holland.

We have learnt about the Latin American festival, Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) and produced symmetrical sugar skull artwork in celebration of this cultural festival. The children enjoyed this immensely.

I will be posting more art work as this second half term speeds by into the winter holidays….keep your eyes peeled…..
