Today Y4 had a full day of Art as we piece together the final stages of our Great Wave inspired work. Over the whole half term, we have been exploring the artist Hokusai and using our line drawing skills to create our wave. Today we got a bit messy and worked on our collage, themed with the colours of the sunset. There was a lot of hard work and determination needed in the morning to make sure we used the overlapping collage skill that we had been working on. Mrs Harvey, our Art leader, was very impressed with the quality of work. Whilst this was happening, the lovely Y4 team pulled children out into small groups to explore some wax resist waves using candles of all things! Finally, in the afternoon, we looked at contrasting colours on the colour wheel in order to represent a tornado! We learnt in our Geography and English that tornados are formed when hot and cold air collide, so this was the perfect opportunity for art inspiration.
Have a look at the photos to see what we got up to.
