We have looked at the art work of the Nigerian/British artist, Yinka Shonibare. We specifically looked at his work based on African Dutch prints. The children used vertical lines, zigzags and anti-clockwise circles in their design using oil pastels. These fine motor skills are essential to practise. They form the foundation of writing cursively, which is expected when your child moves up the school.
As there is a natural link between art and science, we will be looking at Newton’s colour wheel and adding a wash to our designs next week. More photos will be added, so watch the space.
