In Art and Design, Year 5 have been studying the paintings style of Georgia O’ Keeffe. We have been learning how to paint enlarged flowers. We also learned how to make secondary and tertiary colours by mixing primary colours (red, blue and yellow).
In addition to this, we used black paint for shading and white for tinting. We also learned to use a contrast of warm colours like red and orange with cool colours such as blue and purple.
We had fun painting!

Year 5 have been making 3D flowers in art. We made a display of our flowers, grouping them into bouquets. We used different coloured tissue paper and acrylic paints (gold, red, green, silver and white).
Tissue paper (different shades and colours)
- First we got 4 different shades of tissue paper.
- Secondly we put them together and folded them in accordion style.
- Then we folded the green card into a stem.
- Next we pinched the middle of the flower and taped it to the stem.
- After we opened up the flower by separating the shades of tissue paper one by one.
- Lastly we added some detail by painting the tips of the petal and the middle to make it look like pollen.
Don’t they look pretty?

On Wednesday 11th May, Year Three went to the William Morris Gallery to learn about the artist himself. they learnt about how nature inspired him to create such beautiful art that could be marvelled at from your very own sofa!
The children had a session where they created art themselves by learning about repeating patterns, motif and block printing.
