Looking forward to seeing you at 2.45pm this Tuesday for Observational Drawing!

I’ll let the wonderful art that our parents and kids produced in last week’s observational drawing class speak for themselves. Have a look at Tara’s to get a sneak preview of the art installation that we’re working towards in these classes. Remember, you don’t have to be able to draw to come – we’re here to support you on your drawing journey. It’s a great community of parents and kids and a lovely relaxing thing to do with your kids at the end of the day. See you there!

Kids and parents showcase their creative talents!

Scroll down to see just some of the kids’ wonderful Still Life artwork on display in the atrium! More to appear as the kids finish their pieces that they have been taking such care over. They should be feeling very proud.

And scroll down further to see what our parents and kids got up to in our first Community Observational Drawing Class last Tuesday as we prepare ourselves for our next Community Art Installation. Thank you so much to everyone who came. It was a really lovely time together and I’m blown away by your drawing skills. I’m excited to see what subjects you’ll choose next. Community Observational Drawing Class will resume next Tuesday. All welcome. Look forward to seeing you there.

We’re thinking all about colour and style

Having done some wonderful observational drawings, this week we’re starting Artigras early by thinking all about how to colour and style them. We’re taking inspiration from two major artists with two very different styles. One a still life specialist like us now. Can you tell which one? Are you familiar with the work yet of Paul Klee and Roy Lichtenstein? Do you like their work? Which one do you prefer?

We’re taking a close look at how they colour their work…

…and their choice of palette. We’re going to try and see if we can make Klee’s colours in paint. And are thinking carefully about the very specific styles of each of the artists. Watch out in the atrium for the finished products as the kids take their still life drawings to the next step by borrowing colour and style tips from Klee and Lichtenstein.

Come and see your child’s wonderful work

This is our last week working on our observational drawings before we take inspiration from other artists next week for how to colour them. The kids are producing some truly wonderful drawings. It’s been a real journey as we learn to develop our eye to see what’s really in front of us.

Please come to the art room (or KG art studio) to see what your child has been up to in their sketchbooks. Here are some examples from some of the grade levels to whet your appetite. It’s especially interesting to see how different children draw the same subject – a real sign of their natural style shining through.

Have a great week!

Self-assessing

This week and next we’re going to be doing an observational drawing of a subject of our choosing to assess ourselves, to help consolidate the learning and discoveries we’ve been making over the past few weeks.

If you’ve been joining the observational drawing programme and would like to have a go at assessing yourself and your child at home, please find our assessment documents below. The first one if for Grades 2-5 and the second document is for Kindergarten and Grade 1. Don’t hesitate to contact me if anything needs explaining. Hope you get to see how far you’ve come from the experience.
