Classrooms are looking like galleries as students' work is displayed on the walls. Exploring the elements of visual art - colour, shape, line, tone, texture, value, form, and pattern has been our learning focus. Art styles such as abstract, expressionism, geometric, pop, and realism have been investigated. Famous artists' work has also acted as an inspiration for our creations.
Students from across our team have put on their best thinking faces and reflected on making their creations and what elements they believe make them effective pieces of artwork.
