Art: w/c 13th July  

WALT: To produce a view from a different window using a different medium but NOT photography

 

For more inspiration, before starting this week's work, take another look at this gallery:

Last week, I asked you to choose a view from a window in your house and create it using anything but photography. Your work shared on our class blogs were amazing. 

 

This week, I would like you to choose a different window and do the same BUT using a different medium. What do I mean by medium? I mean, choose a different way of presenting your work. So, if last week you chose pencil crayons, choose LEGO and if you chose LEGO, choose paint or collage. But remember NO PHOTOGRAPHY. That hurts saying that, because I LOVE photography but I think you can be more creative than just using a camera.

 

I'll look forward to seeing more from you on out blogs.

Art: w/c 6th July  

WALT: To produce a view from your window using anything but photography

 

For the latter part of our Summer term, I want to move onto something that will hopefully use the creativity that you have shown in recent weeks when exploring art in nature by Andy Goldsworthy and his contemporary artists.

 

To start with follow this link and take a look at the pictures:

 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/in-pictures-52743922

 

What I would like you to do, is choose a view from a window in your house and create it using anything but photography. What do you see from your windows? Now, this will be our focus until the end of our year, so you will get to pick 2 viewpoints.

 

I hope you take advantage of all that you have done so far in your art pieces. Don’t go for the obvious, in terms of making your view. Use your work and ideas inspired by Andy Goldsworthy and all the other artists we have explored. Be as original and creative as you can.

 

And remember, post your artwork onto the class blogs.

Art: w/c 29th June  

WALT: To produce an Andy Goldsworthy inspired creation but in the style of Nils Udo. 

 

It looks like you are all really enjoying Andy Goldsworthy and the alternative artists we have looked at, who make art like he does. Last week you created a piece of art inspired by Richard Long. This week I'd like to see you do the same BUT by looking at Nils Udo.

 

So far, your art pieces have been small in comparison to Nils work. He uses whole spaces to create his work and quite often, he adds something to it to change it, making the larger environment his background.

 

Could you use your whole garden as the background and add something you make, from nature, to it, to change it?

 

A different kind of activity but judging from last week and the week before, you are ready for a bigger challenge in your study of environmental art.

 

Click on the Nils Udo website link below the gallery to see his work and check out his work Art in Nature portfolio to begin with. Choose an idea that inspires you and then create your own. Like before, take a photo and upload it 

Art in Nature by Nils Udo

Art: w/c 22nd June  

WALT: To produce an Andy Goldsworthy inspired creation but in the style of Richard Long. 

Last week you created a piece of art inspired by Richard Shilling. This week I'd like to see you do the same BUT by looking at another environmental artist, Richard Long.

 

In particular, I would like you to visit his website and take a look at his Drawings section. Wonderful, wonderful creations.

 

What is most striking about his work is that he draws and paints on pieces of the environment, be that wood or stone. And they can just be pieces found anywhere. So whilst you go on a walk this week or take your daily exercise, look around for a piece of wood or a nice stone to paint an art piece like Richard's. 

 

Click on this link to his website and check out his Drawing portfolio of work. Choose an idea that inspires you and then create your own. Take a photo and upload it onto the blog. I can't wait to see what you come up with. And last week your artwork was SUPERB. Well done.

Art: w/c 15th June

Last week you created a piece of art inspired by Andy Goldsworthy. This week I'd like to see you do the same BUT by looking at another environmental artist, Richard Shilling.

 

His environmental art is amazing. I particularly love his Balance work.
