On Wednesday Robins showed concentration and creativity whilst having a go at taking their own photo’s. They demonstrated they were able to use grid lines to plan their composition, focus on a subject and adjust the brightness when needed.
Let’s take a look at some of the photo’s! Don’t they look good?
They discovered how they could not only apply pre-set filters but also change individual settings, thus becoming advanced photo editors.
It was great fun experimenting how to adjust settings such as Vibrance, Saturation, Hue, Brightness, Contrast and temperature. This required a lot of active listening, concentration, perseverance and creative thinking.
Having mastered the controls; Robins had to edit their photo to match the style of
Joe Cornish (Colour)
Ansel Adams (Black and White)
At the end of the lesson, Robins evaluated their Artwork in their books.
This week Robins are enjoying Art. Today’s art lesson was split into two parts.
Part 1: Understanding Sketching Techniques.
Robins discussed how sketching pencils vary. They talked about the colour difference between different pencils and also how some pencils have harder nibs whilst others seem softer.
As an extension activity Mr Lo showed Robins how to write volcano (known as a fire mountain) in Chinese. Volcano in Chinese is made up of the Chinese characters for Fire and Mountain. Can you see how the Chinese characters are pictograms?
They then shaded in different parts of the flames using different sketching pencils to see how the difference in tones between pencils.
After that, observed how drawing textures can be done through a variety of tecniques.
They then had a go themselves. Well done for excellent independence, peseverance and concentration Robins!
Part 2: Artist Study: Ansel Adams and Joe Cornish.
Pupils studied the two artists and compared their photography artwork.
We look forward to producing our own digital artwork later on in the week.
Robins have recently been learning all about the Ancient Greeks and the importance of Greek pottery and vases.
Robins made a request if they could have a go at actually making them, and… guess what? We did!
It was a lot of hard work requiring perseverance and concentration. Many of us reflected on how difficult or hardworking the process is and how skilful the Ancient Greeks were.
Below is a short video of our learning!
Everybody worked well and we’re now waiting for them to dry out to take home. Well done Robins!
As an extension task; paint and decorate them at home!
