Topic – Art

Friday 24 November 2023

Year 3 have begun their latest Topic – art! We have two featured artists that we are focusing our learning around.

Wassily Kandinsky

Martha McDonald Napaltjarri

We have used our Geography skills to locate on a map where these artists were born; Kandinsky in Moscow, Russia and Napaltjarri in Haasts Bluff, near Alice Springs, Australia.

We have since then, explored the use of complementary colours and warm and cool colours. We were inspired by Kandinsky’s Squares With Concentric Circles art piece and created these:

We put our concentric circles together to create one large piece of art.
The children explored using oil pastels and chalks.

Help at home by asking your child what complementary, warm and cool colours are!
