Edvard Munch - The Scream
Having analysed some of Gaudi's work, it was over to our pupils to evaluate one of the world's most famous works of art; 'The Scream', by the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. Using ipads for research, pupils explored the feelings of the artist at the time of creating the artwork. Moreover, how Munch expressed his personal emotions in the imagery, compositions, techniques and colours that he used.
'It is amazing the way Edvard Munch has used swirls to show
how he was feeling and to describe the world how he sees it' - Honor D, Class 5
'The techniques used by Edvard Munch and Leonardo da Vinci are totally different.
De Vinci's pictures are very realistic and he used lots of detail but in The Scream,
everything looks like its melting and there is less detail.' - Michael H, Class 6
Art Skills - Drawing and Shading Techniques
In learning how to use a range of different drawing and shading techniques, children gained an improved understanding of various art skills. In examining the techniques used by great artists, such as Leonard de Vinci, they were then able to demonstate this in their own sketches and drawings.
'I knew that if I used my finger, I could blend the pencil
to make my shading more realistic.' Anthony D, Class 5
'I used the colour wheel, which we learnt about in Year 3, to find
the right contrasting colours to use for the shading for the fruit I had drawn.' - Ruby P, Class 5
