1 Blue – Art Week

Wow what a super start to Art Week! This week in 1 Blue the children are learning about two different artists. One from the past – Graham Sutherland and one from the present Chris Ofili.

Today the children looked at different paintings from Graham Sutherland and Chris Ofili and commented on how they were the same and how they were different. They then used their knowledge of each artist to sort different paintings.

The children then looked at Chris Ofili’s famous painting ‘Another Eye Open’ and using sketching skills drew a section of this painting in their sketch books.

What can you tell me about these two artists and their style of art?
