The Big Picture 2016
Throughout the month of June the whole school was taking part in ‘The Big Picture’ where all the children had the opportunity to delve into ART.
The children have been making patterns inspired by the Brazilian artist - Roberto Burle Marx, creating seascapes, Paul Klee inspired patterns, designing and making clay shields, designing and making Venetian Carnival masks, creating Mayan clay tiles, meeting and painting farm animals and designing trainers.
The whole school has created some fabulous original art – please look at our photos.
Take One Picture 2014
During June the whole school took part in 'Take One Picture Week'. We spent a whole week studying the picture Saint Michael Triumphs Over the Devil by Bartolome Bermejo.
The children discussed and analysed the painting and each year group produced work inspired by it which many of you viewed at our Open Day on 30th June.
Below are a selection of photographs.
During the week of Take One Picture, all the staff and pupils at Redwood could be heard discussing angels and devils! There was an amazing range of creative activities taking place throughout the school during this week inspired by the painting of St Michael Triumphs Over the Devil by Bartolome Bermejo.
Year 3 were focusing on composing their own soundscape, choosing instruments and sounds to tell the story of the painting, whilst designing themselves as modern day angels with each class creating their own ‘Host of angels’ artwork – currently displayed along the main downstairs corridor.
Year 4 focused on the triptych element of the painting and worked in groups to design their own versions of the painting within a triptych form.
Year 5 chose to reinterpret the painting through a cubist medium. The year 5 pupils thoroughly enjoyed painting in the style of Picasso and have created two fabulous and enormous shared paintings.
Year 6 designed and made puppets using paper mache of the characters in the painting. They then used the painting as inspiration for writing their own playscripts about how St Michael actually triumphed over the devil.
