Art and D&T

Autumn 2nd Term - Perspective in Art.
We look at the meaning of perspective and then practise ways to draw all kinds of objects and buildings using a vanishing point, horizontal and vertical lines to create realistic effects.

Autumn 1st term - Vincent Van Gogh

The video below is from The Tate website about the The EY Exhibition: Van Gogh and Britain | Tate
This major exhibition brings together over 50 works by Vincent van Gogh to reveal how he was inspired by Britain and how he inspired British artists. The EY Exhibition: Van Gogh and Britain presents the largest collection of Van Gogh's paintings in the UK for nearly a decade.

Miss Taft was lucky enough to visit this exhibition in the Summer of 2019 and was particularly 'blown away' by the incredible brightness of a painting 'Starry Night Over Rhone' - so incredibly dazzling it looked as though it had been painted yesterday! The video includes a talk by an expert about Van Goghs's life and his art - maybe your mums and dads would like to watch this with you.

Year 5 find out more about this artist through various information sources which also link to their studies about Europe where we focus on France. The children use his works to practice their own skills, techniques and of course delve into the wonderful blues and yellows of his work for their own compositions.
