As Artists we will continue to enhance and develop our art skills by creating artwork based on transportation. We will look at famous paintings by artists such as Van Gogh, Da Vinci, Monet and LS Lowry. Throughout the week will use a variety of materials to create paintings and drawings based on the theme of transport. We will also evaluate our art work thinking about things we like and how they could be improved.
