After learning about Stonehenge, Bluebirds set to work creating their own watercolour sunsets, to act as a backdrop for the famous Stonehenge scene. They experimented mixing colours and using different size brushes to paint cave paintings too. Finally, the class recreated a Stone Age hand prints picture on to material which looked very effective! Well done Bluebirds – great.
Bluebirds have been busy finding out why the Stone Age people did so many cave paintings. It was their form of communication to replay messages and share stories as writing hadn’t been invented that long ago!
After looking at a range of examples to establish their style and typical colours, Bluebirds set to work making pencil drawings of Stone Age animals. Today, the children have been concentrating on blending pastels to recreate Stone Age type pictures. Please look at some of our wonderful pictures.
During Computing with Mr Baddhan today, Bluebirds learned about Pop Art and the artist Andy Warhol. They learned about his work and how he made things look interesting using some of his artistic work. We looked at the type of effects he used to make everyday things look interesting and coourful.
Bluebirds used a Pop Art website to add Andy Warhol effects to their own photos. Have a look at the wonderful work they produced to make their photos look interesting.
It has been a fantastic first week back for Bluebirds. This week we have already began learning about our topic on the Stone Age! It turns out we know a lot a lot more about the Stone Age then we first thought. We have begun our topic by looking at cave paintings and having a go at some of our own in pencil.
Have a look at some of the amazing artwork we have created.
