Well, what a fantastic week we have had in 2 White learning all about L.S. Lowry! Have a little look at what we have been up to…

We have learnt lots of new art vocabulary such as media, tone and texture. Here are Hannah & Humza teaching us what ‘observation’ and ‘line’ mean.

Can you tell me what ‘tone’ means?

We used our observations to draw wooden mannequins in different positions. This helped us to draw our matchstick men like Lowry.

We mixed primary colours to make lots of different shades. This is what Lowry did. Can you tell me what the primary colours are?

We also worked together to create Lowry backgrounds which we used to create a stop-motion animation using the ipads. We used all sorts of different materials and our collaging skills too! Can you tell me how you created the stop-motion animation?

We worked hard all week to build upon our skills to create ‘A street in Clitheroe’. We firstly sketched the buildings; then the people; then we shaded our pictures focusing on different tones; and finally we added some pastels. What do you think? We would love to know your opinions! Come and have a look in our classroom.

CHALLENGE! We have learnt lots about Lowry and his piece of art called ‘A Street in Clitheroe’. Can you find ANOTHER piece of Lowry’s work and recreate it at home? You can use any medium you like – paint, pencil, crayons, pastels etc. It’s up to you! I cannot wait to see your work!

Well done everybody – a super week had by all!
