Picasso Potraits - Year 4 - October 2021

On Friday afternoon in year 4 we have created our own Picasso portrait! The children experimented with a funny face shape and where to put their eyes and noses. Then the children drew out their face more realistic and painted it. Lots of fun getting messy!



David Hockney - Year 2 - September 2021

Year 2 have been looking at the work of David Hockney. We have looked at the patterns he uses in his landscapes, experimented with contrasting colours that he uses and created our own colourful landscapes.
