The Arts

with Mrs Leigh O'Shea


Throughout Term 1 the Years 1-6 have been looking at two of the 'Elements of Art'; LINE & COLOUR. We have been learning a number of techniques that can be used in each of these elements to create some beautiful and spectacular art that has made our classroom a 'Work of Art'!

Rooms 10, 12 and 13...

At the start of Term 1 we began by exploring the Primary colours and the difference between hot and cold colours. Each child created their very own 'flag' showing hot colours on one side and cold colours on the other.

 We then explored the Element of 'Line' and the children produced either a collage of various styles of line or learning to use paintbrushes correctly; made them 'dance' around the page and painted various styles of line then painted dye over the top.
