									Drawing and Painting- Key Stage Two
Key Words Abstract, angles, Braque, Cézanne, city, Cubism, Gris, hot and cold colours, Klee, landscape, Picasso, Prendergast, simplification, shape, style, viewpoints. Summary From their school environment, pupils can observe the city/landscape as their main subject. They record different viewpoints and simplify the outlines into abstract shapes. This could be done using tracing paper. Taking their inspiration from relevant artists including the Cubists, pupils learn how to arrange and overlap these shapes into a single flat composition.

Georges Braque – Viaduct at L’Estaque 1908

Peter Prendergast – Bigil 2003

This project could also be extended in a number of directions. This might include printmaking, relief collage and ICT. Designs can be scanned into art programmes such as Paint, Corel Photopaint, Adobe Photoshop and/ or JASC Paintshop Pro where pupils can experiment with filling shapes using colour combinations and special effects. Learning Objectives Understanding Discover how to abstract and simplify images. Develop their understanding of colour, increasing their skill in colour mixing and painting. Making

Increase their knowledge of the local environment and develop their ability to record different viewpoints in a range of media. Investigating Examine and evaluate their own work, the work of others and other artists. Modify their work in order to realise their intentions and ideas. Teaching Activities Pupils should use sketchbooks to record and annotate the city /landscape, as seen from their school environment. Using drawings/ photographs/ digital images they have gathered from the school windows, playground they record outline shapes of buildings, street furniture, different horizon levels etc. Significant features could be recorded from a range of angles. Pupils could look at and discuss examples such as these by Paul Klee and Juan Gris which show the artists main area of interest.

Paul Klee- Red Balloon 1922

Juan Gris- Landscape with Houses at Ceret 1913

Pupils should discuss how they have assembled their work, focusing on how they have combined and overlapped different viewpoints onto a single painting. Pupils select and trace outline of shapes from these drawings /or photographs, cutting each traced outline out. These they draw around as templates, arranging and overlapping them to create possible compositions. This could be simplified with pupils just copying their shapes directly on to the paper and arranging with overlaps. Pupils evaluate their work, before transferring their design onto card or paper. Colour names and combinations are revised before demonstrating hot and cold palettes. Pupils chose which palette they wish to use. They are taught how to mix these colours demonstrating a range of combinations. Pupils paint their design using flat blocks of colour.

Key skills ICT Use web site to access information on the work of other artists. Use a digital camera to take images. Use an art programme to overlay images on top of each other. Literacy Through discussion describe their work and that of others. Numeracy Calculate approximate distance away, consider shape, outlines and compare sizes of buildings Curriculum Cymreig Welsh artists eg. Prendergast Resources ACCAC Optional Material for Art at Key Stage 2. Maker pens, pencils, sketchbooks, tracing paper, card, papers, ready mixed poster paints (lemon yellow, vermilion red, ultramarine blue and cyan blue), scissors photocopies of their sketches, digital camera and examples of artists including Cubists.
