Outing to National Gallery

Outing to National Gallery – Mythology in Art!  We learned about a number of Old Master paintings which contain mythological stories – why the artist was great and the story of the painting, which we then drew

Impressionism

We learned about Claude Monet and the new art movement that he created, the first movement of  Modern Art.  We learned how to paint like an Impressionist and produced an artwork in Impressionist style

           

Paul Cezanne: the Father of Modern Art

We learned about the life and art of post Impressionist artist Paul Cezanne, revered by Picasso as the father of Modern Art and created an artwork in his style

                           

See the major exhibition of Cezanne’s work opening in the Autumn at The National Portrait Gallery – link here


Horses in Art!

Horses in Art!  We explored all things equine in art – from George Stubbs (1724-1806) to present day

Chinese Art!

Willow Pattern is the blue and white porcelain which was imported into England from China in the 1800’s.  We learned about the components of Chinese art and the Willow Pattern legend and painted our own based upon these ideas


Japanese Art!

Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was a huge influence on Western European art and is famous for his beautifully executed and serene series of Mount Fuji.  We learned about his fascinating life and art – visit the “Hokusai – Beyond the Great Wave” exhibition at the British Museum over the summer holidays – link here
