Wednesday 10th June 2020

This Saturday (13th June) would have been The Trooping of the Colour. This event has marked the official birthday of the British Sovereign for over 260 years (currently Queen Elizabeth II). Unfortunately, these celebrations have had to be changed this year.

Can you help the Queen celebrate her official birthday? Have a go at making birthday cards, crowns, soldiers or anything else that you can think of.

I would love to see your creations.

Friday 5th June 2020

In school yesterday, we looked at different artistic styles. First we looked at Vincent Van Gogh’s ‘The starry night’.

https://www.vangoghgallery.com/painting/starry-night.html

We looked at the colours, the style of his painting and how it made us feel. We then made a mono print using his painting as inspiration!

After this we looked at Pointillism. This style of painting only uses dots of colour to build up an overall picture. So we used cotton tips to make the dots of colour and drew around our arms/hands for the tree trunk and branches.

A fabulous arty day.

I would also like to see any of your wonderful arts or crafts. Please do share, so we can all see how wonderful you all are.

We thoroughly enjoyed our art activity today making ‘God’s eyes’.  A craft activity, which involves twisting wool around sticks – in a sequence. This then makes a beautiful eye design.

Here is a video tutorial if anyone would like to have a go.

There are lots of beautiful things growing at the moment. It has been good weather lately, which has helped all the plants thrive. Why don’t you take inspiration from the colourful outdoors and create things linked to our natural world?

There has been some amazing art and design produced over this last week.

Olly Scott has been extremely busy. Look at the fabulous 3D robot he has made at home! See the step by step photos of his construction. I love the finishing touches of the flower and dickie bow tie! Amazing work Olly – Well done. A budding engineer or architect of the future?

Mrs Brown worked with the children, in school, to make some ‘Kandinsky’ inspired pictures. They are so colourful and just what we need to cheer everyone up at the moment!

On Friday, Mrs McGuiness helped Oliver and Ellie to draw ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’. They also watched Draw with Rob on YouTube https://youtu.be/fj12BZE5FKw and wow what results!

Keep up all the fabulous work. I am thrilled to see all the talent we have at St.Joseph’s.

Inspiration for this week. Why not try to make some artwork in the style of a famous artist? From Pablo Picasso to Salvador Dali or Jackson Pollock! Make a family portrait in the style of Picasso or try your hand at sculpture like Dali. Whatever you try, I would love to see them all. Please don’t forget to share!

Friday 8th May 2020 – VE Day 75th Anniversary

Well done to the families who have shared their wonderful, commemorative artwork for the 75th anniversary of VE Day.

Noah Lonsdale and his sister Hannah made some beautiful bunting! It is now proudly displayed around their home.

The Watson family created fabulous ‘Tommys’ for their windows!

In school, we also produced some beautiful ‘Blitz’ silhouettes, by using chalk and black paper. Our cutting skills were also put into practise! Everyone did an amazing job.

If you would also like to give these a go, the following video was really helpful.

Keep sending your amazing work. We are all really impressed and its lovely to see.

Wow, we are already in May. I can’t believe how time is passing!

Eliza Barnes, in Miss McGough’s class, has shared her beautiful design for a sea creature. She has thought very carefully about its features. Amazing Eliza, I hope you enjoyed making it.

 

Next week, we were due to be celebrating VE Day in school. The celebrations, unfortunately, will not be quite the same as planned. So let’s brighten up our blog with some lovely artwork to commemorate VE Day and our armed forces!

How about designing and making some medals and deciding what they could be given for?

Take inspiration from Laurence Stephen Lowry, who painted this picture to commemorate the last VE Day 1945.

The Royal British Legion are producing ‘Tommy in your window’ (see below). Why don’t you have a go at making a ‘Tommy’of your own?

I’m sure you will have lots of ideas of your own. I look forward to seeing all your artwork.
