Year 4 are currently undertaking a project on the Rainforests. This involves lots of different work across the curriculum areas including looking at the work of Henri Rousseau.
Using the interactive art program JUNGLE at the Washington National Gallery Of Art our children made some wonderful images for their project, of which we’ve put a selection below on the blog. For more – see the website.

Year 3 and 4 are exploring the exciting world of dragons in their latest topic for this half term.
Which means they got to dress up, make lots of dragon art, listen to dragon stories and generally have a great time on their Dragon topic launch day….
Year 4 looked at the work of L.S. Lowry as part of their recent Charlie & The Chocolate Factory topic, and these displays show just how much they enjoyed the topic….

As an end activity for our Year 2 computer art project where the children have been looking at various artists (Kandinsky, Mondrian, Pollock, and Stella, we decided to take the bits we liked most from each artist and either make a final piece in the style of the artist or create a mashup piece taking elements from several of them.
We had some great pieces of art…
Charlie – a clash of Stella and Mondrian
Isaac – taking Pollock splashes and mixing them with Kandinsky lines and colour shapes
Maria – taking the straight lines of Mondrian and splatter of Pollock.
And finally, combing the circles of kandinsky, the formal grid of Stella and the lines of Mondrian…. we have this wonderful piece by Amanda:
Year 2 have been experimenting with artworks on the computer, and have looked at Jackson Pollock, Piet Mondrian, Frank Stella and Wassily Kandinsky.
This week we did a couple of extras…
First we looked at more Kandinsky, specifically these….
So, we had the artist, we had the task, our brief was to go away and make wonderful pictures in the style of Kandinsky…. Year 2 did some wonderful work. Here’s just a sampling, go to the website for more:
November 2012: Year 2 have been experimenting with making pictures in the style of the painter Kandinsky.
This involves composing the piece using lines, fills and colour and is the culmination of all the work they’ve been doing so far using the computers to make pictures in the styles of Pollock, Mondrian and Stella.
The full set is on the school website, but here are just a few examples….

Year 2 have been experimenting with making pictures in the style of the painter Frank Stella. This involves composing the piece using lines, fills and colour.
The children were set the task to stick to rigid structure first and then told to get creative in a Stella-esque style!
And they really went to town – fantastic stuff. The full range is on the school website, but here’s a little sampler:
