SCHOOL IN THE PAST
Our current WAU topic involves us learning about what school was like in the past.
Our school was built a long time ago, it opened in 1936!!! Can you work out how many years ago that was?
We walked around school and sketched six pictures of different architectural features of the building. We found the old boys and girls entrances! We focused on shading and tried to include as much detail in their pictures as possible. It was pretty chilly so we had to sketch quickly....brrrrrr.❄️
OURSELVES - PORTRAITS
Primary Four have been looking at the artwork of famous artist Pablo Picasso.
We completed portraits using colour to display emotion just like Picasso did. We compared Picasso's portraits to the film "Inside Out. The character Sadness was blue and Joy was yellow. Picasso used blue for his sad portraits and bright colours for his happy portraits.
We also discovered Picasso's abstract art. We used him as inspiration for our own abstract self portraits.
