Art Club is a lunch club for Year 2 children.
This year our Art Club is working on a large collage which will be displayed in the school hall. Each week groups of children will add more detail to the larger picture.
Using different art techniques and developing different skills, the children will produce two large images of the school.

This week we looked at the outline of the school. We used poster paint to add the background colours. We used different shades of brown, grey and blue to fill the paper with colour.
This week the paint had dried on the background. We were able to add lots more detail using oil pastels. We thought carefully about the extra details that we needed to include and we used different shades to make some of the features look more three-dimensional.
We are pleased with our picture so far.
This week we found out about perspective. We looked at lots of famous artwork featuring children playing and people at leisure. We also looked at some artwork by L.S. Lowry. We then used pencil, pen and pastel to draw pictures of children playing to go onto our school playground scene.
This week we tried to create different effects using collage.
We ripped different colours and textures out of magazines and added them to our artwork. This included pictures of plants, flowers and greenery to create our Millennium Garden scenery and some trees in the playground. We still have lots more detail to add but we are really pleased with the effects that we have created.
This week we continued to draw people to put in our playground mural. We drew lots of the staff to include too, including some of the lunch staff. We again looked at some artwork of people to give us some ideas for details to include and how to use perspective for people who are closer or further away.
We used pencil, crayon and pen to draw and colour in our pictures.
