How do artists make us feel emotion?

In grades 3-5, we are analysing the techniques illustrators use to make us feel emotion.

If you haven’t already, have a look at some of the wonderful illustrations by the artist Francesca Sanna. Can you pinpoint some of the techniques she is using?

Perspective & watercolour

Some of us in grades 1-3 have finished our observational drawings with time to apply colour. We are enjoying taking a first look at some watercolour techniques.

We will devote ourselves to a whole unit learning watercolour techniques in the new year.

Seeing things from different perspectives

Hope you had a relaxing holiday. We have started our first day back by looking at the world from different perspectives.

Join us in enjoying the beautiful work of the artists that will be our inspiration for our next project. Can you guess what object each artist has chosen as the focus for their work?

Stained glass windows in a hospital?

We are experimenting with a beautiful idea one of us had to bring joy to the patients in the hospital with stained glass windows. We have discussed the many different things that lift our spirits if we are feeling down, or unwell. One thing many of us love to see is animals. We are wondering whether adults are children are cheered up by seeing the same things.

We will continue to inquire to discover different ways of creating art that will bring a smile to the faces of those who are under the weather!

Watch this space.

Using art to care for our wider community

As we have continued to work with the medium of collage, excitement has grown right across grade levels as we discuss the possibility that we can use our art to do something really powerful – to lift people’s spirits. We have been wondering why only children’s hospital wards are decorated with uplifting images. When so many of the people we love in our lives are grown ups. Don’t grown-ups need cheering up when they are feeling poorly too?!

What sorts of images might uplift them? How could we portray those images in collage? What colours/ colour schemes might make them smile? What colours make us feel happy?

How can we deliver our art to a hospital in Bangkok to put a smile of the grown-ups’ faces? Who would most benefit from seeing our artwork? Could we even take it a step further?!

If you work in, or have any contacts in, hospitals – particularly those with less funding to spend on decoration – and you believe you could help us to realise our project, please contact me: daisy.ca@kis.ac.th

Thank you so much!
