Pop Art

This project will further develop understanding and skills the pupils have previously gained. It builds upon their knowledge of materials, artist and approaches to thematic ways of working. Pupils use a wide range of materials to create different pieces of two dimensional works based on an artist work. These will include; oil and chalk pastels, watercolours drawing inks and use computer programs to generate repeat patterns. Pupils will look at the work of Contemporary Artists develop skills and approaches which include grids, enlargement and the use of mixed media
