06.07.18 Andy Warhol Fun!
This week has been such a creative week in Year 1/2! We have really been embracing all things arty and combining this with our English, Maths and ICT work.
Our first stop was Andy Warhol. As part of our ICT work we were required to load, copy and edit a picture and what better way to do this than to create some Andy Warhol PopArt! We began by learning about Andy Warhol and looking at some of his Artwork so that we could really begin to understand his style. Next we learnt how to load up a web based program before also learning how to load up a picture that we could edit. We decided to use a black and white picture of Mickey Mouse. After loading the program we then learnt how to edit the picture using a range of contrasting colours and the highlighter tool.
We then took our ICT skills a step further and learnt how to take pictures of ourselves and then use them in a new app to create a popart picture of ourselves! I wonder if you can spot who is who in the window display?
Finally we learnt how to copy the image and create a repeated picture of ourselves! True Andy Warhol style!
We also did some more work on our artist Charles Mackintosh. We spent some time researching his most famous work on stained glass window designs. We enjoyed finding out all about his style and really like his artwork so we decided to have a go at producing our own stained glass windows. We had great fun researching and designing the windows beforehand choosing our favourite design to make.
