Year 3

Pondering Creation

Landscapes - Irish painter John Luke was the inspiration for the Year 3 folk art landscapes. Students chose their own environment, sketched in a horizon line and then filled the background with small things that best suited their chosen location. In the foreground students added rolling hills and used bright lines, shapes and patterns to fill the space, bringing their artwork to life.

Sunflowers - Our Year 3s had a wonderful time creating a clay version of Van Gogh’s sunflowers. They look magnificent! Skills in molding, shaping, slipping, scoring and blending were discovered. Painting on clay was a new experience while considering their brush strokes and blending of colours to effectively produce a gorgeous sunflower
