Art at Woodlea
At Woodlea, we explore the three main techniques of painting, printmaking and sculpture. Alongside this we are continuously developing our drawing skills and techniques.
We learn about artists throughout history; from our prehistoric ancestors up to artists living and working today. Through looking at these artists we aim to learn their techniques and use them to produce our own artworks.
Below is an example of some of the work produced across school so far this year.
Inspired by artist Grayson Perry’s ‘Art Club’ on Channel 4, which aims to get the nation creating, Mr Payne decided that Woodlea needed an art club too! Each week, whilst we are on lockdown, Mr Payne posts a video to the children demonstrating an art skill. Mr Payne then chooses a selection to show on the website.
Week 1 involved developing a range of drawing techniques: line drawing, drawing without taking pencil from paper, drawing with wrong hand and drawing without looking at the paper.
