Pack up your pencils, pick up your paintbrushes and prepare to be amazed by the wonderful work of 19th and 20th century artists.
During this half term, we’ll talk about features of the artwork and sketch our favourite pieces. We’ll research important artwork of the 19th and 20th centuries online, choosing a favourite piece of art to describe in more detail. Using maps, we’ll locate art galleries around the world and calculate how much it would cost to get there. We’ll create pieces of art inspired by well known artists and use search engines to source images of modern art to put into a digital portfolio. We’ll express ourselves through poetry, stories, music and painting. Art can affect our feelings and emotions, and we’ll investigate whether everyone responds in the same way.
This project runs for the second half of the Autumn term. Homework contributions can be made throughout the half term, please make sure your child brings in something that they have worked on at home.
Below are some ideas for each project, try one of these or something else project related.
Explore the life and artwork of a famous artist and then turn your research into a fact file or poster.
Visit a local gallery to see what exhibitions are showing, take your sketch book and make notes about the things you see. Alternatively, use the free Google Expeditions app to explore an art gallery virtually.
Practise drawing from observation. Choose a range of interesting objects to depict drawing pattern, shape and form.
Collect any old tester paint pots and make a large-scale abstract painting on the back of a roll of old wallpaper or large sheet of paper!
Take inspiration from Brian Selznick (the illustrator of Hugo) and sketch parts of your world at home.
Draw a model of how light enters eye and allows us to see.
Take a photograph outside in the same spot throughout the day – what happens to the length of your shadow?
What is a prism? Investigate what a prism is and where you can see them.
Draw a comic strip of what happens at a Christian baptism
Interview someone who has had or been to a Christian baptism – what happens?
Set up a mirror course in your house and see how far through your house you can make the light reflect.
At the end of the project homework period your child will receive either a bronze, silver or gold project homework badge.
Bronze = a basic piece of project homework was completed
Silver = a good piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of time to complete
Gold = an excellent piece of project homework which has clearly taken lots of thought, time and effort to complete
