Creative, Crazy and continuous Circus art in 6W

This week we have looked at how we can create abstract and representative portraits of ourselves. We have looked at Pablo Picasso and why he is famous; we also looked at his lesser known work. Firstly we captured our own portraits using our facial expressions and photography skills. To begin with we studied line and how that can represent form. Continuous line drawings are a great way to express ourselves and challenge our understanding of proportions.

Furthermore, we studied colour. We gained an understanding of how this can represent different emotions and personality traits. Some of us even created pie charts to demonstrate our personalities. When applying this understanding we experimented with a new material: Brusho. Did you enjoy this material? How did you use it? We studied the history of the circus and used some of our geography skills to help us find out more about the Circus Festival in Monte Carlo!

After creating our line drawings we used these as a basis to create our wire art. We had to manipulate the wire – this was very tricky but we created some fab abstract art! we also used symbolism to create silhouette drawings. What object did you use to represent yourself?

To end our art experience this week we used either a warm or cool palette to create some funky portraits. What material did we use? Could you tell me which colours fall into which palettes?

    Yes because it gave it affect and then left the paint and I didn’t touch touch it.

    The materials were paper brushes and brusho I used cold colours .

  7. In my opinion, I enjoyed this material (Brusho) because it gave a really great pattern and the texture was amazing.
    We first wet the paper and sprinkled the Brusho on. This skill is called ‘dry on wet’.
    The materials we used were water colours and tracing paper so we could trace our portraits.
