This afternoon Year 2 have had an afternoon full of art. We have carried on colouring in our bird’s eye view pictures, this time using oil pastels. Some of us needed to finish off the felt-tip pen versions and they are looking great! We are using colours to create pictures in the style of Andy Warhol, an American artist who was famous for his pop art. We have two more pictures to colour in two more art mediums. Take a look at the Tate Kids site for more information about Andy Warhol.
Some of us have also created a sunset colour wash ready for a silhouette picture of our own localities. We started with a pot of watered down yellow paint and, once we had used it for a couple of stripes at the top of the paper, we added a spoonful of red paint to create a graduating sunset effect. By the end of next week we will all have had a go.
