Art and DT

Our Lockdown Art Project

We have an exciting art project to complete in February!

It is called Windows.

First look at a range of paintings by famous artists showing views from their windows. Everyone’s views are different. Some are exciting and some are familiar. We have even included a view that could be through a window in a dream…

Task 1:

wc 1st February

Warm up

Choose and complete one of the drawing warm-up activities in the art folder 'Drawing Warm-Up Activities'.

Look closely

There is a painting by Marie Louise Von Motesiczky. Look closely at it then draw labelling lines and write notes of all that you notice around the edges.

Task 2 wc 8th February

Warm up

Choose another of the warm up drawing activities from the folder to complete.

Copy your favourite

Look at all of the window paintings in the folder and choose your favourite. Then copy this as carefully as you can using any materials you have. You could draw it in coloured pencils, felt pens, or sketch and shade it in normal pencil or even draw it in pen. Can you try to keep all the details from the original in your version?

Task 3 wc 15th February (half term)

Warm up

Choose another of the warm up drawing activities from the folder to complete.

Plan your version

Have a look out of the windows in your house. Choose your favourite one and begin to plan out a picture. How much can you include? Don’t worry if you have to just select a part of the view. Don’t worry if it is near or far or a very familiar object. You are the artist. Decide what you will put in. This is your choice so it can’t be wrong. You might decide to do a view from a real window, a dream window or from a window that you remember.

Task 4 wc 22nd February

Warm up

Choose another of the warm up drawing activities from the folder to complete.

Draw and Create

Draw your view in any materials you have at home. Ask before you use paints and please do not make a mess! We want this to be a fun activity! Sometimes drawing in pencil, pen or felt tips could be the best option. You decide.

Add plenty of detail and sign your masterpiece when it is finished!

We are hoping to display all of our effort in a virtual gallery on the Virtual School.

We can’t wait to see your completed work. You can take photos of your work as you complete it as well as at the end.

Have fun and be creative!
