As part of our world religion celebrations, we looked at India and the different religions of India. We have been inspired by Andy Warhols Pop Art. We created prints of the Golden Temple influenced by Andy Warhol. We used rollers and acrylic paints to build on our skills of mixing primary colours to create secondary colours. We will be using the skills we have learnt to plan our final piece of art work.

In year 1, we have been looking at African masks. We have learnt about the history of the mask and discussed the significance of masks culturally. We enjoyed looking at the animalistic features and different symmetrical patterns and textures we could see on the masks. We also noticed the natural earthy tones.
First we designed our own mask. Then we manipulated modelling clay to add texture and different features to our masks. Finally we used natural, earthy tones to paint our masks. We enjoyed learning a mask dance with our masks on.

Reception African Art - designing and outlining to make our Art stand out.

As part of black history month reception have been looking at the history of African masks and many different designs and types of masks. Before we painted our masks we learnt how to design them with a choice of colours and designs. We looked closely at detail and used pencil crayons. Miss Walsh our artist has shown us how to outline our Art work. We remember that it makes our Art pop!
