This work is due by MON 11th MAY 2020!
Hello to all my Grade 5 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 FAMOUS ARTWORKS!
All grade 5 students at Cambridge Primary School learn about PARODIES of famous artworks.
What is a PARODY?
The easiest way to understand a PARODY is to start with a musical PARODY.
When you take a piece of popular music and change it to make it funny you create a musical PARODY.
Sesame St is full of musical PARODIES.
Try this one.
And one of my favourites, Weird Al Yankovic, has made a career out of writing musical parodies and then creating the videos to go with them. He has been doing this for more than 30 years!
Hey! Wait a minute? What is all this music? Are we doing MUSIC in Visual Arts?
Yes we are!
Now, back to Weird All Yankovic!
And for those who love Star Wars!
So now you understand what a musical parody is. It is easy to figure out what a famous art parody is. It is when you take a piece of Visual Art and recreate it making fun of it.
Here are some Mona Lisa Parodies.
In the past Cambridge Primary School students have created some very funny and interesting Mona Lisa parodies.
But in this time of remote learning we are going to do something a little bit different.
I want you to choose a famous artwork and recreate it.
A lot of people locked down at home have been doing this all over the world.
So what I would like you to do this week is spend some time looking at artworks online and deciding on which artwork you want to recreate.
So, do I want you to paint or draw something?
Instead you can use yourself or members of your family and dress them up to recreate a famous artwork. a bit like this.
Or you can use a different sort of material to recreate a famous artwork. Like this
