M.C. Escher Tessellations
Our first look into the live and work of Maurits Cornelis Escher. He is famous for using mathematics in his art work through tessellations. So we thought we could have a go using a repeated shape we each created.
James Mayhew Inspires!
We were very lucky to welcome James Mayhew, author and illustrator of 'Once Upon a Tune', into our class for a truly inspirational workshop. James spoke about his life, his work with both illustrating and writing and gave a wonderful demonstration of painting to classical music from the book.
The Swan of Tuonela with music by Jean Sibelius.
We were all so inspired that the children had a go at the same process James goes through creating illustrations for his books. Children researched images, practised drawing images in their sketch books with different media and colour and then produced their artwork.
