Artists of the Week

K – 2 Artists of the Week

In Visual Arts, Kindergarten have been exploring self-portraiture.  They drew themselves firstly from memory and then fully engaged their noticing muscles to draw themselves from observation. They worked very hard to include detail and represent their facial features.  After the initial drawing phase, the boys had the opportunity to go back and rework their portraits in order to add greater detail and texture.

Congratulations to Harrison McIntyre and Alexander Zhuang. Both boys demonstrated a wonderful sense of balance and excellent control of line whilst drawing

3 – 6 Artists of the Week

Congratulations to all Year 5 for their hard work this term. The boys have finished their ‘100 Amazing Journey’ Artworks. They have done a wonderful job with creating poses that tell a story. The boys were introduced into the technical aspects of watercolour on hot pressed paper. They also used graphite paper to trace themselves as the main character from their story. The backgrounds were painted as a result of thinking about where the character could be in a moment of time.

Congratulations to Guiness Devlin, Felix Beresford, Will Chanter and Thomas Tweeddale who excelled in this artwork.
