Herons Art and Technology

After our visit to the Wind Energy Museum, we investigated wind power and forces such as air resistance and gravity  in science, then  tried out making several types of kites, before designing and making our own.

 

Earth wind and Fire Art

We have made eerie people in the style of Anthony Gormley.

We have used watercolours to tell the Christian creation story.

We have layered tissue paper to show vents, magma and lava to create volcano pictures in the style of Margaret Godfrey.

Antony Gormley

The Kingfishers have been finding out about the work of Antony Gormley. They looked at his work ‘Field’. 

In groups, they read instructions on how to create their own figures. First they tried with play doh and then they created their finished product with clay. Even though they all started with the same ball of clay and followed the same instructions, each creation is unique!!

We talked about how they all looked when they were lined up together.

What do you think? 

Are they: spooky, friendly, haunting, scary, funny?

In Bitterns Class we have started to learn about sculpture

In Bitterns Class we have started to learn about sculpture. This week we have been inspired by the work of Antony Gormley. We looked closely at his Field of clay figures and used clay to create our own sculptures in a similar style. For some of us this was our first experience using clay. 

In Bitterns we have been studying land art

In Bitterns we have been studying land art. We have been particularly looking at the work of Andy Golsdworthy. Inspired by his work, we decided to make our own sculptures using natural materials collected from our school grounds. We worked hard in small groups to create these beautiful pieces of artwork.
