Art Diversity Day!

Henley Green Primary School completed an Art Diversity Day on Tuesday 6th June. Each year group were inspired by artists from the country they explored on Language and Culture Day on Monday 5th June. 

The children loved having an Art day and they were so engaged with researching their countries culture and the artists, exploring different techniques, and planning their final outcomes. Their artwork is brilliant and has been proudly presented on a whole school display for all staff, pupils, parents, and visitors to see! Fantastic work everyone!

Sketches from the Four Corners. 

In Art, we are learning how to sketch lightly and use different grades of pencil at different angle to show a variety of tones. 

We were shown how to use hatching and cross hatching to show tone and texture in our drawings. 

In our Geography topic, Four Corners, we are learning about the four countries of the U.K. We decided to use landmarks from each to highlight our sketching skills.

To inspire us, we looked at an artist called Stephen Wiltshire who is famous for drawing landmarks and cityscapes, mainly in pencil.
