Handa's Surprise

We have LOVED our art topic this term - learning about primary colours and mixing them to form new secondary colours. We have added white to make a tint or black to make a shade of our original colour.

Over the term we have produced some amazing artworks (shown on our previous blog posts) as well as stunning flowers used in a collaborative class artwork. This week has been no exception to the high standard of work created!

We read the story of Handa's Surprise - see the story here. We then looked at, smelled and tasted the fruit that featured and used this experience in our writing. Finally we chose one of the fruits to paint for our end of term Art Exhibition. We learned about the technique called 'pointillism' used by many French painters in the last century and used this when creating our fruit masterpieces.

Many thanks to all of you who were able to come and see our artwork in the hall. For those who didn't manage to see it, here are our individual artworks that we showed:

And here is our finished collaborative artwork:
