Summer Term Art
As part of our history topic about the Stone Age, I would like you to find out about Stonehenge.
I have attached some information about Stonehenge. If you load the PowerPoint, the quiz is better but if it doesn't load, I have uploaded a PDF version too. Also, you can use the link for further information.
Now you have learned about Stonehenge's history it is time for your task:
Re-create Stonehenge in any way you like. You could draw it, paint it or even use biscuits to create a model. Be as creative as possible!
I have attached some images above for you to use as inspiration.
This week in art we are using the Evolution of Man as inspiration. I've attached a link to a YouTube video of someone using oil pastels to create a background and then drawing the stages of evolution on top. You can use whatever resources you have to create the background.
I've also attached a copy of the finished picture.
In the Stone Age, people recorded and communicated through pictures which they drew onto their cave walls. They would have used mud and clay and crushed up seeds and plants to make pigment to rub onto the cave walls. Inspired by this and the picture Sophia made with mud last week, I would like you to have a go at making art using natural things. You could collect things to help you with this on your daily walk.
This week we are going to be doing DT instead of Art. As you have learned, people who lived during The Stone Age were hunter gatherers, and this week your task is to design and make a Stone Age weapon. During that time, people made weapons with the resources that they could find around them. I would like you to have a look to see if you can find some things that you could use. The most obvious things would be stones and sticks, but if you can't find them, you could think outside of the box...
I'd love to see your creations. You can post photos into your Portfolio on ClassDojo.
This week, inspired by our Stone Age Boy story for English, I would like you to have a go at sketching a prehistoric creature like the ones below from the book.
I know you all love art, and you are so good at it.
I have attached a document with lots of ideas to practice your techniques. These can take as little time or as much time as you like.
I will probably add other things for you to try as I find them. You could always pick something you'd like to try to draw and 'youtube it!' Your ships were amazing this term after we watched that clip on how to do water colour
Week Commencing 30th March
I think you will enjoy this one! Your task is to go outside and take a picture of something in your natural surroundings. When you come inside, you can re-create this. You can do this in any way you like. Here are a few examples.
You may choose to add colour to yours.
Another idea would be to use handheld technology such as a phone or tablet to create a pic-collage, it is a free app after all!
