Art and Design in Action

Dreams and Aspirations
Whole School Project
Year 3/4
In art this term we have been looking at the artist Cassie Stephens' printing work for inspiration and then made our own monoprint townscape prints using our sketches of Totnes buildings.
Year 3/4
In year 3/4 we have designed canopic jars, using our historical knowledge of Ancient Egyptian Gods and Goddesses. First, we experimented in using the score, slip and blend technique to join clay, creating a raised embossed symbol. 
Then we chose the deity we were basing our work on and then used a colour wheel to choose symbolic colours which would add power and embellishments to our designs. We also sketched Egyptian backgrounds and used watercolours to bring these to life.
