As artists, this term the Year 1 children have looked at different work by Eric Carle. They have shared their opinions of his artwork and discussed their preferences with their peers. The children learnt about the primary colours, mixed them to make secondary colours and also worked on creating lighter tints and darker shades of a colour. The children particularly enjoyed using different materials, including tissue paper, to make a collaged picture from an Eric Carle book. As groups, the children worked on experimenting with a range of objects of make different patterns. For their final piece of artwork, the children recreated a picture using all the skills and techniques learnt in this term.
