Wildern Art Afternoon

You may have noticed our fantastic mural that has developed and grown over the last few weeks! Kate, our artist, has been busy using lots of artistic styles to show different events through the ages.

We were particularly interested in the Beatles artwork which was painted in the style of the artist Peter Blake.

Miss Thomas, an art teacher from Wildern, came in to talk to us about Peter Blake's work and how he was part of the 'Pop Art' movement. She explained how he used colour theory to make different colours work well together.

After we had listened carefully, we then explored colour theory for ourselves.

We then had the opportunity to work with Wildern art students. They taught us different printing and collage techniques so we could copy some of the ideas that Peter Blake used for his artwork. Click the images to make them bigger.
