31 Mar Amazing Year 2 Artists!
As part of their topic Muck, Mess and Mixtures the children in Year 2 learned about famous artists and their preferred technique.
They learned about L. S. Lowry and how he used charcoal in his pictures. They also learned about the artist Bridget Riley and how she used the technique of printing.
The children learned new skills through exploring the technique of drawing with charcoal and printing. Each child then chose which technique they wanted to use for their final piece. The children were able to explain why they made their choices and how to be successful with their chosen medium or technique.
When each child had finished their artwork, they mounted it ready to display. They each thought of their own title for their artwork, reflecting the subject or colour.
