Etchells Primary School - Woodland Project Part 3

March 07, 2018 3 Comments

The flurries of snow last week have prevented all of the children from being able to finish their paintings, but those that have been able to complete them have done a brilliant job! I am really looking forward to seeing the rest too once they are done.

When I was first in contact with the class I never could have imagined how brilliantly their paintings would turn out. I think taking their time to look at the detail in the eyes of different animals, and practice drawing their geometric patterns has really paid off!

Unfortunately the snow scuppered the planned video call last week as well. I am busy beavering away at the moment for an upcoming exhibition, but we will video call soon! I want to make sure we have plenty of time for the children to ask lots of questions, and I in turn have some questions for them too!

 

I hope all of the children have enjoyed creating their paintings as much as I have enjoyed looking at them all. Their next project is to create a hedgehog in my style (I have had a couple of requests for hedgehogs, so maybe I’ll take inspiration from the children if I paint one!) and I certainly can’t wait to see their finished results.

I really enjoyed learning about Sarah’s artwork.It’s really unique and is very detailed! My favourite painting is the one where the “fox of delights”is facing you.

What fantastic artwork from the children! I am amazed what they have produced. I know Sarah is very excited about this project and I look forward to hearing the comments from the children when the video call finally takes place😀

I have had the privilege of watching the children create these wonderful pictures at school and their results have been stunning. I would just like to congratulate both the class and teacher on an amazing project that has set such a high standard for the rest of us to aim towards! Well done guys and I can’t wait to see the final display – (you may find one or two pieces missing at the end as they will be on my wall!).
Sarah they have been truly inspired and your art work is awe inspiring.

Wildlife art project - Home School Help!! :-)

March 24, 2020

Hoping to help parents who are now home schooling with a project about wildlife painting. This isn't a step by step guide in how to paint like Sarah, the aim is to allow children to  research an artist, create an artist profile, and then to experiment with colour & paint. I have taken the key points from the lesson plans created by Jo-Anne Mallinson, a Deputy Head teacher and tried to make it flow in an accessible way.
