Responding to Music in Art

Year Two have entered a competition in conjunction with the Cavantina Trust to design a piece of artwork responding to Music. These are their designs which a both inspired by the artist Kandinsky and also the very special concert we had at school by a string quartet from the Cavantina Trust. Look out for our designs in the playground and take a look at the examples below!

Year 6 Minimalist Geometric Landscape

In Art we have been making some AMAZING Landscapes using geometric shapes! We started by cutting a semi circle out of paper we had prepared last week with different textures.

We then layered different isosceles triangles to create the mountains reflecting in the sea!

'I am very proud of my work. The composition is perfect and I layered the different shapes skillfully'
