Welcome to Rainbow Time Art Attack!
Your child will spend the next 5 Friday afternoons with Miss Carter. We will be studying Kandinsky and choose one of his pieces of work to recreate. We will recreate the art in different materials such as pencils, pastels and paints, while learning different techniques for using these materials. By the end of the half term we will have an amazing gallery of artwork to share with you.
We are very much looking forward to our Rainbow Time sessions.
Week 1 - 21/9/18
This week we learnt about Kandinsky and how he was an abstract artist. The children learnt that Kandinsky listened to music while he painted and painted what he could hear. The children had a go at drawing what they could hear in the music from the same musician that Kandinsky listened to.
Week 2 - 28/9/18
This week we recreated Kandinsky’s work in coloured pencils. We practiced blending colours to try to match our colours as closely as possible to the originals. The children have chosen either ‘Squares with Concentric Circles’ or ‘Black and Violet’ to recreate.
Week 3 - 5/10/18
This week we used paint! We looked again at colour mixing to try to match the colours as closely as possible. The children worked very carefully and took great care with their paintings.
Week 4 - 12/10/18
This week we recreated our art using chalk pastels. The children learnt that they can create lines of different thicknesses depending on how they angle the pastels, and that they can smudge the pastels to blend them.
Week 5 - 19/10/18
This week we had chance to finish off our previous pieces. Some of the children had a go at using mixed media in preparation for our final session next week.
Week 6 - 26/10/18
This was our final Art Attack session. We put together what we have learned over the weeks to create large final pieces collaboratively in mixed year groups. We used a combination of coloured pencils, pens, paints and pastels to create fantastic mixed media pieces. We think they look great and the children are proud of their hard work.
