This term in art, you will be gaining and exploring many concepts. You will have a go at cutting, tearing, investigating texture all will the aim to complete a collage of an aeroplane linked to Amelia Earhart - an explorer linked to our History curriculum.
Your first lesson will include gaining knowledge of an artist known for his collages.
You may want to complete your own research on this great artist and explore his artwork.
Your second lesson will involve you exploring and investigating with different materials you can find around your home to produce a collage.
You don't have your sketchbooks, so you can stick to any paper you have at home. You can make a collage in your topic book, or you can lay out materials and play around with how they look. Use everyday materials you find around the house. Use crisp packets, snack wrappers, old scrap paper, magazine cutting, tinfoil, toilet paper - anything you can find!
During the third lesson, I want you to explore different materials you have at home. Think about materials you used for your collage. Can you describe their textures? Make links with your learning from science lessons.
Have a go at sorting some materials from your home. You can choose to use my ideas and sort them into bumpy and smooth. You may choose different criteria to sort them.
In lesson 4, you will watch a video (link underneath the slides) to explore different techniques and use them to create a rocket using more materials you find around the house.
Have a look at these images of rockets, you may be able to find a better image to help you. Have a look at the shapes you can see. I want you to have a go at drawing your own rocket on plain paper or in your topic book. I then want you to practise using the knowledge and understanding of the techniques shown to produce a collage inside the drawing of the rocket. Make sure you draw your rocket large enough for you to stick materials on. Again, use materials you can find around your house.
