Y6 Body Art

1st March 2022
This term, our Year 6 pupils have been learning about North American Art.
One of the artists studied was Helen Frankenthaler.  The pupils looked at how this artist used bodies to create abstract shapes; they were then inspired to work collaboratively to produce their own body art.  The children took turns to lie on the paper while their classmates drew round them, making sure that the outlines overlapped to create new shapes.  The groups of children then considered how colours could be used to create different moods and feelings.  Painting the abstract pieces took a couple of lessons and gave  everyone the opportunity to develop their brush work and painting techniques.
We are very pleased with the final pieces which are currently on display in the school hall...
