In Term 1, the children learn how Human Movement can be used in artwork. The human form is one of the most interesting and rewarding subjects an artist can draw and yet one of the most difficult. These works were created on iPads using the art app Art Studio. Firstly, the children took photos of themselves or others in an action pose. These photos were imported into the app and a “layer” created over the top of the image. The children drew on this “layer” until they had completed their drawing. The photo is then deleted and their tracing drawing remains. This is work from the first two lessons.
The artist Fernand Léger will be viewed, discussed and used as inspiration, especially his circus and carnival artwork from the 1950’s.
