In our Topic lessons this week we have been thinking about how Overstone village has changed since our Grandparents were little. Today we went on a walk around the village to look for important features to help us to draw a map of it.
This week we finished our wonderful self portraits inspired by Frida Kahlo's artwork by adding tissue paper flowers to them.
This week in art we have started to create our own self portraits in the style of Frida Kahlo. We have replicated her large, dark eyebrows and thought carefully about the shade of colour to use for our hair and skin. We will be finishing these off next week by adding tissue paper flowers.
We have been looking closely at Frida Kahlo's artwork in our lessons this term. We noticed that she used colours to help to show how she was feeling in her self portraits. To explore this further and think about colours that make us feel happy and sad we created our own collaged mood boards using a range of different materials.
