I hope you are all well and enjoying some of this lovely sun!
We will continue with our meet the artists project after half term.
Meanwhile as you can’t see your friends and family or visit nice places, why don’t you let them come to you…
Here are some virtual tours you can do free from the comfort of your own home…
The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum holds work by greats such as Marc, Mondrian, Picasso, and Koons. The Dali Museum in Tampa Bay Florida provides visitors an inside look into not only the artwork of surrealist master Salvador Dali, but also to the important people and places of his life. The National Gallery of London houses the national collection of paintings in the Western European tradition from the thirteenth through the nineteenth centuries. All three are worth a visit…
You can also visit the British Museum without even leaving your sofa!
Have a good half term break, remember stay positive and stay safe. Hopefully see you all very soon!
We are starting a new topic called “Meet the Artists”
As most of you know my art skills are limited so I will need your help!
Firstly we are going to learn about Meet Frida Kahlo, L. S. Lowry and Joan Miró, three world-class painters whose techniques and subject-matter will inspire and teach you to create your own stunning artworks.
This is one of my favourites by Joan Miro
In the next couple of weeks we will have a go at painting self-portraits, urban landscapes and abstract works under their influence.
Have a go at reading/watching The Butterfly Lion by Michael Morpurgo. What do you think of the story? Have a go at writing your own chapter…
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9V3a8zsVETM you can listen to the story online…
Carry on with you online learning and use the websites provided. If you go shopping try and budget, how much will you need? What change will you get?
Keep safe and looking forward to seeing you all soon!
We have spoken to families and they have all said how well you are doing…
Visit the Imperial War Museum for stories about the Second World War:
Or take a look at Senator John Heinz History Center for a World War II virtual tour:
Or visit the National Museum of the United States Air Force for a World War II and Holocaust exhibit:
There is lots to keep you busy but the most important thing is that you keep smiling and stay safe!
This is really useful for explaining what is happening in the world right now to our young people:
