Class Teacher: Mrs Denvir
Welcome to our Art pages! As we blog about our work, projects and trips they will appear below, along with any photos we choose to upload.
As part of their topic on 'Europe', the p6 pupils have been looking at the work of Spanish artist, Pablo Picasso. There were mixed reactions to his style of portraiture and the pupils found it very challenging to create portraits that did not look 'realistic'. The results however were amazing and the pupils were delighted with their final pieces!
Inspired by what thew saw in the gallery, the pupils created their own surrealist images using acrylic paints. The pupils enjoyed their walk along the Water of Leith to the gallery and used photos they had taken of the pathway as a basis for their paintings. They explored the visual elements of shape, colour and tone as they created the botanical backgrounds for their work.
The realistic pathways then became surreal as the pupils added strange objects to their work, making their paintings seem dreamlike and weird!
