Wassily Kadinsky

This term we have been learning about the work of Wassily Kadinsky. We looked at his choice of vivid colours and the wide range of mediums he used; canvas, wood and glass. We looked at the shapes and lines used by Kadinsky and tried to imitate his style. We then used our knowledge of complementary colours to recreate Kadinsky’s paintings.

Today both year 4 classes visited the Half Moon theatre and gallery to see the current exhibition titled ‘Recycollages – Junk Transformed by Susan Wadsworth. She is an artist who has a passion for the environment and creates striking and playful mixed media works using the everyday debris of our throw-away society, such as plastic toys, bottle tops, old comics, drinking straws, clothes pegs, broken jewellery and plastic bags. Her exhibition focuses on how we look at waste and that something good should be made of the things we throw away. Both classes behaved magnificently!!

The topic for year 1 is dangerous animals this term. The children have been reading the Little Red Hen in literacy and in art we turned the little red hen into a dangerous animal by adding various dangerous features, such as fangs, spikes, claws etc.

Throughout the week Year 3,4&5 took part in work shops with artists Georgie, Hannah & Julia. The children created prints of their own buildings, then they created them using cardboard boxes. The last day was installation day and time for the classes to explore their new city on the roof!
