This term, Year 5 will be studying Sculpture and 3D installation art, in particular looking at what is installation art and how to design their own installation art piece using mixed media. The children will analyse examples of installation art, identifying common features and using the questions to guide their ideas. We will also learn about a great artist Cai Guo-Qiang and also discuss how his scale of work will affect the viewers. Children will discuss about the message behind the installation heritage and think about the messages their own pieces of art give. Finally, we will plan out how to make our installation art more interactive by using lighting, sound or special effects.
