Mrs Watson came back to P5B to do some art with us today. We are studying France just now so we were looking at the work of Claude Monet (1840-1926). He was born in Paris and is best known for his painting in the Impressionist era and particularly those painting of his beautiful garden in Giverny. Mrs Watson brought in some amazing objects for us to draw. Let’s see how many you can spot…
We painted black rectangles and squares onto large sheets of paper. Once they are dry they act just like blackboards so we were able to use white coloured pencils to sketch out our animals and flowers. We then named them in French! Can you guess what they mean? We then used chalk and coloured pencils to add the final touch of colour. I think 5B should be very proud. Mrs Watson though that they were fantastic.
Here are the children’s works of art in the making…
Mrs Watson (Sam from 5B’s mum) came to do art with P5B, P1 and P2 this Thursday 19th February. She knew that we were donig our HOMECOMING SCOTLAND 2009 project so took this idea and made it into art!
She taught the children how to create a seascape using lots of different techiques with paint. We used sponges, brushes, paper towels and even folded up bits of card to create zig-zag waves in the sea! We then had to come up with different modes of transport that people might use to come home to Scotland in. We had ideas from hot air balloons (with the Homecoming logo on them) to windsurfers and airplanes.
Thank you, Mrs Watson, we hope you like them!
Here are some of us working on our paintings:
