We are excited to be beginning our new project

By drawing one subject from many different angles, we are looking at things in a whole new light! Can you tell what our subject is?

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!

Great start to the year!

As we settle into good working practices, we have introduced collage – our first medium this year – to express our hopes and aspirations for art this term.

Please support our work over the coming weeks by bringing in anything you think we could use for our collages – it might be recycled sweet wrappers, envelopes, wrapping paper, paper napkins, paper tablecloths from restaurants, or newspapers and magazines.

Feel free to use your imagination!

Many thanks.

Ready to reveal KG-G2’s wonderful favourite animal Sketches

As we continue to open up about ourselves and our passions, and see the connections between us, we are making personal profiles for our whole school community.

In KG-G2, one of the things we have been doing is very careful observational drawings of our favourite animals. Some of us have even done observational drawings of the things we love most in world after animals (and family!).

We have made numerous drafts in our efforts to realistically portray our animals. But have worked hard at the same time to capture the spirit of the animal with the flow and freedom of our lines.

Once we completed our pencil drawings, we imported them into Tayasui Sketches, which is a brilliant (and free) sketching app that parents can download at the App Store.

We have been experimenting with the different tools available and working out which ones realise the effects we are looking for.

sketches-tools and tips (1)

Then we have been applying our understanding of colour harmony to colour our drawings. Some of us have been working with hex codes to get the exact complementary colour (or other harmony, for example monochromatic, analogous or triadic). Others of us have only used this as a platform to freestyle, which of course we encourage too in the name of art!

One of the things we love about Tayasui Sketches is that we create multiple versions of our work nearly as fast as we think of the new idea!

We hope you enjoying seeing our work so far! We’ll keep updating with more as we finish.

Please download the Tayasui Sketches free app from the App Store to join us in our inquiry.

Complementary colours

Today we looked a little deeper into the science of complementary colours and how to find them on the colour wheel. Some of us thought about how we could create an artwork of our favourite animals using our own colour scheme (of favourite colour and complementary colour).

We started looking at how complementary colours are used in design and we will start learning from some incredible paintings by the Impressionists, who were the first artists to apply the science of complementary colours to make their colours pop!

In Grades 3-5 our Canva skills are coming along handsomely. And Grade 2 have amazed Mr Eric and I with their abilities in Canva. Let’s see where they take them.

We look forward to sharing our imaginative profiles and animal paintings in due course.

Have a lovely week!
