4 White Art week

We have had a fantastic week in 4white. Not only have we rehearsed and performed an assembly, we have also learnt a lot about the famous artist, Albrecht Durer. Two of his famous pieces of art work inlude ‘The praying hands’ and ‘Hand with pointed finger’.

We experimented with a different grades of pencils to create a range of tone. The children then used the range of pencils to complete a picture and finally create their own picture of the hand with pointing finger.

We designed and made our own 3D models. We decorated these to represent an emotion. We also made a group piece of 3D art using newspaper, mod rock and paint.
