Year 2 become artists!

Black History Month

Year 2 began Black History Month by becoming artists to create African sunsets.

We started the day by going over the primary and secondary colours and created a colour wheel.

We then thought about “warm colours” and created an African sunset backwash on A3 paper.

Next, we explored the different trees and animals that can be found in Africa. We had a go at drawing them, focusing in on size.

After, we drew the trees and animals onto black sugar paper to create our silhouettes.

Finally, we decided on the position of the animals and trees to finish our art.

What do you think of our work?

Stay tuned to see our upcoming work on Mary Seacole!
