We have been colouring in llamas during our cross curricular Art and PDMU lessons. On the reverse side of the Llama we wrote something we were a little worried about and then discussed and resolved this with our class teacher in a follow up lesson.
We have been studying Van Gogh, a famous Dutch artist who specialised in creating fine art paintings. Some of his famous pieces include: Starry Night, Irises and Sunflowers. During our Art lessons, we have been studying real life sunflowers, paying particular attention to their texture, shape and colour.
Whilst Van Gogh painted 'Sunflowers', we have have been using oil pastels to achieve the same effect. In class we discussed the Colour Wheel and how certain colours can be created using only the primary colours. Miss Sleator then modelled how to achieve a three dimensional colour by using a number of oil pastels and layering them over each other using short strokes.
