There is some fantastic art work being produced at the moment by Y1 and Y2 as part of their topics. Year 1 are busy with their Parks and Gardens topic, growing their own plants from seeds as well as studying some famous paintings by artists such as Van Gogh and Monet. Using very similar colour palettes it is amazing to see how different their finished pieces look. It is certainly worth a detour down the Y1 corridor to see how the gallery is coming along.
Year 2 are also feeling artistically inclined at the moment and making great use of the new resources we have added to the T Block playground in recent weeks.
Some of you may be familiar with the work of Andy Goldsworthy
"Andy Goldsworthy is an extraordinary, innovative British artist whose collaborations with nature produce uniquely personal and intense artworks. Using a seemingly endless range of natural materials—snow, ice, leaves, bark, rock, clay, stones, feathers petals, twigs—he creates outdoor sculpture that manifests, however fleeting, a sympathetic contact with the natural world. Before they disappear, or as they disappear, Goldsworthy, records his work in superb colour photographs."
You can view some of his beautiful work online.
Year 2 have been using his inspiration to create some amazing pieces of temporary art.
More to come next week...
