Year 3 have recently completed some fantastic pieces of work, all in celebration of National Art Week. They have improved their drawing skills, focusing on accurately drawing individual features of the face and then drawing their own self portrait. Following this, they looked at the work of Andy Warhol and his bright and bold use of colour. The children loved creating a piece of online artwork in the style of Andy Warhol, combining their computing skills with their knowledge of art. We virtually visited the National Portrait Gallery, exploring the seven different virtual rooms with the children each choosing their favourite piece of artwork and explaining why. Finally, the children compared the work to Andy Warhol to that of Henri Mattise, deciding which style was their favourite and giving reasons why. I have been thoroughly impressed by how the children have engaged with the activities this week and I’m sure that some famous artists of the future shall be coming from Sandford Hill. Well done Year 3!
