We are learning to: Accurately recreate the proportions, colour, value and texture of a painting.
This lesson we divided up images to recreate as a collaborative class project. Students each took ownership of one section of their painting and used the triangular gridding method we did in class last lesson. I am really excited to see how these turn out and was really impressed with how well students worked together to make sure their images aligned and were accurate.
The next stage was accurately mixing the colours for their section of the painting. This proved more difficult but we are getting there and students realised by working together they could combine knowledge of what worked well and what colours were the most successful combinations.
Pupils should be taught to develop their creativity and ideas, and increase proficiency in their execution. They should develop a critical understanding of artists, architects and designers, expressing reasoned judgments that can inform their own work.
