Please take a look at the wonderful art work that has been taking place in Myatt this year.
We are passionate about engaging children’s learning through the arts and encouraging self expression and confidence. Every year each class has an opportunity to work with Karen Vost, our Arts Specialist teacher working on a range of creative projects, community art events, visiting galleries, working with Outreach Artists and taking part in inspiring art lessons.
Take One Picture 2017
Each year the National Gallery promotes the use of a single painting for cross curricular teaching and learning through the Take One Picture Programme. This year, all year groups were inspired by the fresco ‘Penelope with the Suitors’ by Pintoricchio.
In Year 6 we drew a still life of a fish. We learnt that in Tudor England, people were only allowed to eat fish on Fridays and during Lent.
Our year 6 classes have been learning about Tudor portraits. We have been learning how to use sketching pencils to create shadows and shading.
Some of our Year 6 children have enjoyed making sketch books.
We have enjoyed making continuous line drawings of every day objects in our sketch books.
Children have been drawing feathers with pen,ink, quills and sticks. They have also been making ghost prints using paper from vintage book pages.
