Artwork from Bitham Brook Primary School in Westbury
Thursday 2 March – Tuesday 11 April 2017

The mixed year groups, from FS2 to Year 6, were each inspired by a variety of different themes, linked to a topic or other curriculum area or a ‘special theme’ day.  Pupils often explored an artist’s work, artistic technique or approach and developed these skills within their own work.

Two FS2 (Reception) Classes:
•    The children took inspiration by looking at ‘Autumn Trees’ to paint these, developing different brush strokes.
•    Children used string dipped in paint to create a symmetrical pattern.
•    A selection of paintings created in self discovery time!  
Three Mixed Year 1 and Year 2 Classes:
•    (Dinosaur topic) The children created tonal paintings of a sunset background, with ‘Dinosaur’ silhouettes.
•    (Pirate topic!) The children used a variety of techniques to create artwork based on their ‘Pirates’ theme – boats and characters!
•    The Big Draw theme day – inspired by ‘Food!’ Close observational drawing of fruits.
