Art from England

Year 6 art has been inspired by the City of Canterbury. Firstly, we looked at single point perspective and noted how objects appear smaller as they move futher away from you. Then we made drawings of a railway track disappearing into the horizon.
Our pictures of places around the City of Canterbury use the skill of perspective to make the scenes look 3D. What do you think?

Art from Nothern Ireland

Art from Northern Ireland was inspired by local heritage and international links. The images depict water in relation to the River Roe which flows through Limavady. The children took part in ourdoor studies and visitied the local Country Park in which the River is a key feature for observation and learning. Children also looked at images and paintings of mountain ranges in the North West area of Northern Ireland and children then created their own pieces of work, based on these images. Northern Ireland features highly on the World History scene in relation to the building of 'The Titanic' in the Harland and Wolfe docklands of Belfast. The troubles have influenced many pieces of art and architecture within the North of Ireland. The images of the silhouttes are inspired by the sculptor Maurice Harron entitled 'Hands accross the divide.'

Art from Norway

Our art has been inspired by:
  1. "Mollestadeika", which is Norway’s second largest tree and 1000 years old. There are many tales connected to this tree. In the old days, people believed that the tree had supernatural power and that if it was damaged, diseases and accidents could harm the farmers and their crops. Therefore the farmers always gave the tree and the spirits living underneath the tree different offerings, such as bear, milk or food. The tree and its spirits would give protection in retune.
  2. “Teinefossen” – the waterfall in Birkeland. The river was used to transport timber just until 50 years ago.
