Mayor’s Award for Visual Art, Year 5 – Monday 19th February 2018
Year 5 were involved in the Mayor’s Award for Visual Arts and Miss Murphy from Year 1 coordinated the special project. Day one was spent getting very messy with paint and exploring with shapes and patterns using different printing techniques with recycled materials. The children had no idea what they were creating at this point. On day two, the project was explained and the children began to create their ‘Cityscape’ artwork. They looked for different shapes in their printing work and got to work, sticking the different buildings onto their backgrounds. They layered the buildings to give a busy city feel. The finished artwork is fantastic and the children were very proud of their work! Our overall winner was Joanne from 5Y.
