Art at home.
Your task is to find five things around your home and draw around them, turning them into something else. You will need paper and a pencil. Choose one object from around your home at a time and place it onto your paper. Think about what your object could be part of. For example: the eye on a face, the tree in a garden, then draw around the object, using it to make your drawing complete. Take a look at the examples below before you start.
Art Week Beginning 22nd June 2020
Look at the examples of mosaics and read the information about them. Then design your own mosaic. You can download and print out the squared paper to help you if you have a printer. If not, why not make your own grid using a pencil and ruler. Or you could even cut up squares of different coloured paper (try an old magazine) and use those. Afterwards, why not take a photograph and email it to me for the Gallery page?
Week beginning 1st June 2020
Make a Thank you poster for all of the key workers and display it in your window.
Week Beginning 18th May 2020
There were many kinds of Roman shields used by legionaries (soldiers). Earlier on they were oval and flat, but at the time of the invasion of Britain (AD43) most were rectangular and curved, like part of a cylinder. This shield is called a scutum.
The scutum was a shield made from two sheets of wood glued together and covered with canvas and leather, usually with a spindle shaped boss along the vertical length of the shield. It can be considered a body shield and was extremely heavy (~10kg). Below is an example of a Roman shied, take a look at other examples of Roman shields here: http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/romans/shield.html
Can you design our own Roman shield? Think about what shape you will make your shield and how big it will need to be on the page. Consider the colours you would use for your shield.
If you did a really good 'cave painting' picture last week, why don't you send me a photo of your work and I will put it on the website?
Email it to me firstname.lastname@example.org
Watch the short video about cave painting made by the Stone Age people. Can you draw your own stone age picture using pencils or chalk o paper, or can you find a stone to draw with in your garden and draw on the concrete?
