This term we are learning all about the artist Hannah Hoch. Today we started our own collages of trees.
In class, we have been learning about El Anatsui, an artist from Ghana. He creates huge art installations using recycled materials. We have had a go at creating our own art work like him!
This term we are linking our art lessons to the book we are reading, Mama Miti by Donna Jo Napoli. In our first lesson, we looked at a selection of African textiles and created our own illustrations to go with the story.
During week 4, we made our own version of a African kente clothe. We designed two different patterns then wove them together.
In class we have been studying the work of Picasso. We have explore his abstract portraits and had a go at recreating some in a variety of mediums.
