Arran Art

Beech Class looked at art by contemporary artists depicting Arran and we imitated their work using a range of media including: Brusho, oil pastel, wax crayon and acrylic paint.

Etel Adnan Art

Beech Class studied the art of Etel Adnan, a Lebanese artist and we imitated our work following experimentation with mixing colours and learning how to choose colours that work well together.

DT Cushions

Beech Class used a range of dying techniques including resist, Brusho and tie-dye to decorate the cushions we designed and made in DT.

Textile Art

Beech Class used a range of stitches to attach fabric and other items to depict underwater scenes linked with our Our Blue Planet theme.

African Art

Beech Class studied the art of a range of contemporary African artists and imitated their work linked with our work about Africa during our Global Citizens theme.  We used a range of media including: acrylic paint, water colour and oil pastel resist, felt pen and poster paint.

Modroc Olympians

Beech Class made figures representing Ancient Greek Olympians.  First of all, we made wire figures using the proportions of the human body. We then made a base out of clay. After that, we covered our model with Modroc. When it was dry, we painted it with bronze paint so it looks like a bronze sculpture.

Greek Pots

Beech Class made clay pots in the style of Ancient Greek pots. We studied different types of Greek pots and their purposes. We designed our pots and the illustrations on them. We made our pots using the coil pot technique. When they were dry, we used fine brushes and black acrylic paint to paint our designs. We used illustrations of Ancient Greek pots as inspiration for our designs.

Egyptian Self Portraits and Canopic Jars

Sycamore Class designed and created Egyptian Self-Portraits and Canopic Jars. They used different sculpting techniques for their jars. They used the coil technique for the base and adapted a thumb pot for the head.

Greek Pots

In Beech Class we painted our own Greek pots. We learned about different Greek pots and what they were used for. We  chose a design for our pot and then decorated it with typical images and patterns from Ancient Greece including scenes from daily life, myths and legends, Olympics and battles. We painted these pots in preparation for making our own Greek pots out of clay.

Canopic Jars

As part of their topic on the Egyptians, Sycamore Class have made some canopic jars out of clay.
