Year 4 have been looking at the visual effects of marbling. They experimented with shaving foam and food colouring to create striking images.
This week in Art we have been experimenting with our drawing techniques. The class have used 1.5m bamboo sticks, with a pencil attached to the end, to draw a skeleton leaf. After 10 minutes of drawing with the stick, they changed their technique and drew traditionally with a pencil and compared the results.
Year 4 have been experimenting with mixing and blending watercolours to create mood. To inspire their mood colours the class chose the themes of Winter and Christmas. Practising first in their sketch books, they mixed a range of warm and cold colours. The children then used their knowledge of colour to create winter scenes, which were used for calendars. The children also sprinkled salt on their images and observed the effects.
