Pegasus meets the art room.

Today we finally got to try out the art room, and we were very excited. At the minute we are making some amazingly bright freedom birds to go with our writing. As well as this we were creating some amazing African art work. This was quite hard as each box needed a diffrent pattern.

We used oil pastels on our African art work and tissue paper, paint and lots of glue for our birds. We are very happy with the results and hope you enjoy them.

Year 3 – Working as Artists – Week 1

We have been looking at the artist Julien Sinzogan, and how his art work links to memory, identity, travel and celebration. The country of Benin in Western Africa plays a significant role in Julien’s art work, looking at his own heritage, history and culture. Julien’s work has a large focus on travel, family, celebration of life and death and the Benin Slave Trade.

This week our focus has been ‘Family’. We have looked at what ‘family’ means, what different families look like, why families are different and that all families are different and that is ok.
We have linked this week’s art work to our understanding of ‘sense of self’ and ‘belonging’, as well as creating collage to portray our own family trees.
