Black Artists

Gallery Critique

Year 6 have looked at a variety of black artists. They have researched their backgrounds and the different styles favoured by the artist. 
They then had to critique the artwork and add their comments to the piece. Questions included: how has the artist used colour, are there repeating patterns, what are your eyes drawn to in the artwork, what mood is the artist trying to create, and how has the artist used light and shadow to highlight.

Art and Design afternoon


Year 6 completed their companion project by recreating a piece of artwork from the inspirational black artists. They used a variety of manipulation skills and tools to model their sculptures, or different blending and brushstrokes to paint a copy of their favourite painting.
