We have been learning about the Scottish artist Ritchie Collins as part of our Scottish topic. We have used his drawing of Edinburgh castle as our inspiration to create our own image. We were focusing on colour, texture, line, form, tone and shape. We were also exploring creating a foreground, middle ground and a background.
This week we started our new topic – Under the Sea!
We have loved exploring the new sea creature toys and playing in our own submarine!
We have done lots of art work inspired by under the sea. We have been particularly working on our cutting skills.
P1 began our new ‘Under the Sea’ topic by making some jellyfish! We had to paint our plate, cut out tentacles and a smiley face. We have also enjoyed playing in our new kitchen area and we have made lots of brilliant castles using the bricks!
