Hello to all my Grade 3 students from Cambridge Primary School and whoever else might be reading this post.
We are going to be doing a bit of Visual Arts learning around the topic of Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflowers in ART!
So, in Week 3 you drew a rough draft of four different sunflowers.
If you didn’t do this work go to week 3 here.
And in Week 4 you drew a rough draft of a vase of sunflowers. if you didn’t do this work go to Week 4 here.
Now, in Week 5 and Week 6, I would like you to create your final artwork for this unit of work. I want you to create an artwork of a vase of sunflowers.
This artwork will require some thinking and some organising. So this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!
In the past, my grade 3 students have created a vase of flowers like this.
This artwork involved-
This sort of artwork is called mixed media because so many different sorts of materials and ways of creating are used at the same time to create a whole artwork.
But in this time of remote learning we all have to adapt to creating at home.
So you have lots of choice with how you create your vase of sunflowers this week. However I want you to use more than one sort of material or one way of creating your art work.
So perhaps you will draw
Salt Dough Recipe
- I cup salt
- 2 cups plain flour
- 1 cup hot water
- Add salt and plain flour to a bowl gradually adding hot water. You might not need all the water!
- Mix together until a dough forms. Make sure it isn’t sticky.
- Leave your salt dough creations to air dry overnight. Then put your salt dough creations in the oven at 120 degrees Celsius for about 3 hours.
- When your salt dough creations are cool you can paint them. If you don’t have gloss paint and you want them to look shiny you can paint them with varnish when the paint is dry. If you don’t have any varnish just paint them with PVA glue. This will also make them nice and shiny.
or all of those things
or something I haven’t even listed!
This cooking artist, Lorraine Elliott from her website Not Quite Nigella has created a focaccia as a vase of sunflowers!
in how you create your artwork but I am NOT telling you to go out and buy stuff! Use what is already in your home! Don’t forget to ask permission to pull stuff out of cupboards to use or to make salt dough, or things like that.
Email your photos to me when you have finished.
I cannot wait to see your artworks inspired by Vincent Van Gogh’s sunflower paintings!
You can send it in earlier but remember this artwork is due on Monday 24th May 2020!
Have fun creating!
