Did you guess what culture we might be studying in art from the post title?
Year 5 are learning about art in Latin America this half term. We have looked at artists such as Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera to find out more about what artists wanted to represent about their countries.
This week, we then practiced techniques for making 3D objects using clay and adding pattern and texture using different tools. We all made turtles, forming the shell and then attaching the head and legs. We decorated the shells with patterns from the art we had seen in previous lessons.
Next, we will be designing our own form to make – a shape, animal or person, and planning how we might decorate it with patterns and colours.
