Foundation Home Learning – 3rd July 2020

Art project

Sadly, this will be your final art project sent to you during lockdown! I hope you have enjoyed the previous two art projects. I have loved seeing your amazing creations uploaded onto your year group blogs. Seeing as this is your final project, I thought it would be a great idea to give you some freedom!

Therefore, you can choose:

  • The artist you would like to get your inspiration from
  • The media/materials you use
  • How you would like your art to look
  • How you would like to display it

Task:

  • Research artists, (this can include architects and designers) and choose one that you would like to base your art work on. (I have included documents that show artist fact files. You may look through these and find an artist you like OR you can research artists online and choose your favourite.)
  • Write a fact file about your chosen artist, architect or designer. Include:
  • Their name
  • Where they originate from/live
  • What inspires them
  • The type of art they create (drawing, painting, sculpture, photography) and the techniques they use
  • If possible, comment on the colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space
  • Discuss why you have chosen this artist. What do you like about the art? How does it make you feel? What do you think makes the art/artist successful?
  • Plan your art work. BE CREATIVE! It doesn’t just have to be a piece of artwork on an a4 piece of paper. For example, if you have chosen William Morris as your artist, you could create a 3d living room in a card board box and wallpaper the walls with painted designs inspired by his art.
  • Create the piece of art work inspired by your chosen artist.
  • Challenge! Analyse your art work. How did you use the artist’s work as inspiration? What techniques of theirs did you use? Did you include any other techniques? What was successful about your art? What would you do differently next time?

You have worked so hard on your art work this year! You should be extra proud of your achievements in art. I have included a certificate template. You may like your parent to print it and write it for you, if possible.
