Year One Art
Please look below for examples of our art work in Autumn One. Our focus was on drawing faces.
We used mirrors to look at the shape of our faces and our eyes, noses, mouths and hair. We looked at splitting up our faces into thirds to help us place our eyes, nose and mouth in the right place on our face.
When we had drawn our faces we looked at adding appropriate colours to our drawings.
We looked at the artist Giuseppe Arcimboldo who created faces out of fruits and vegetables. Then we looked at the shapes of different fruits and vegetables to create our own faces.
We thought carefully about which fruits and vegetables could represent different parts of our faces.
We looked at the famous artist Poonac and how he changed the shape of the mouth and eyes to help show different expressions.
Then we drew faces showing different expressions in the style of Poonac.
