Oak Class used paint to depict spring flowers using careful observation.


Chestnut Class used Purple Mash to produce their versions of Mondrian’s famous geometrical artwork.  They used lines and fill tools with precision.

Superhero Digital Art

Chestnut Class used a range of computing skills to produce their superhero montages. They copied, pasted, resized, positioned and used painting and fill tools.

Save the Elephant

Sycamore Class used the illustration by Steve Simpson called “Save the Elephant” to inspire their digital art.

Robert Jahns

Sycamore Class studied the surreal art of Robert Jahns.  They used copy and paste and layering to create digital collages inspired by his surreal art.

World War II Digital Art

Finally, in their digital painting focus, Beech Class used the digital art skills we had developed to produce a digital art collage linked with our history study on World War II. We used a combination of layering images and paint tools to create effects. Beech Class are now focusing on Stop Motion Animation.

David Hockney

Thirdly, Beech Class studied the digital art of British artist David Hockney.  We learned that David Hockney is 4 times the age of Fewocious but has embraced digital art using an i-pad to depict landscapes and still life.  We imitated his style using layering on Kleki and a combination of uploaded watercolours that we painted and digital art to enhance.

Alejos Lorenzo Vergara

Secondly, Beech Class studied the art of Spanish artist Alejos Lorenzo Vergara.  We imitated his landscapes using the painting tools on digital art programs.


Firstly, Beech Class studied the digital art of the US young artist known as Fewocious.  We used his work as inspiration for our digital collages made using layering tools, painting tools and copy and paste on digital art program Kleki.

Mexican and Mayan Art by Beech Class

We learned about Mexican folk art and we were inspired by Mexican Otomi embroidery in our collage patterns. We used templates and transfer techniques.

We are learning about the Mayans and learned that they used pictures to tell stories and to record information rather than words. These pictures were called codices and we used collage to decorate many of the codices that the Mayans used.
