Our first piece of art work is exploring lines. We looked at Bridget Riley who is an artist from London who created lots of pieces of art using different forms of line.
The children looked at her artwork and considered what they thought it reminded them off. We then looked at different lines; horizontal; vertical; diagonal; wavy; cross-hatch and broken lines, to make different patterns using wool.
After we explored the lines we then explored making permanent lines using 2 colours of chalk on black paper. Some children explored smudging the chalk to make different images.
Here are their results.....
The next part of our Art journey is to apply the lines into our art work with a purpose. We used a piece of music and video with waves on to explore how waves move and the lines they make.
The children then had a go at recreating the wave lines in a team art piece. We used different mediums, chalk, pencil, pencil crayons and pens. The children then looked around their friend's work and told them which parts they liked the best.
We then applied this to our sketch books and used 2 colours to create waves in the ocean. Again, the children were able to choose between the 4 different mediums.
