French artist Henri Matisse inspired us to ‘paint with scissors’ in Year 4. Year 6 were also creating their own version of Matisse’s ‘Beasts of the Sea’. We also looked at a ‘real’ painting copied from one of his earlier works ‘ Woman Reading’ 1920. Year 5 used their knowledge of The Ancient Greeks from their English and History lessons, to design a Greek pot calendar, and then made a pot from clay. The Italian artist Amedeo Modigliani had a particular style, and we replicated his style in our self portraits in Year 6. We have lots of talented artists too!
Well done to the amazing artists in Year 2 that worked so hard to produce landscape paintings including a home from the present day. They look fantastic!
The children had a fantastic time visiting the Oriental Museum as part of our China topic. They used art, performance and team work to develop their understanding of China and retell the story of how Chinese New Year began.
A huge congratulations to Cameron Coyne in Y2E for placing 1st in the South Tyneside Addison Act Art competition. There were over 700 entries! His enjoyed collecting his prize and seeing his art work displayed at The Word. Well done!
What an amazing day Y2A had at The Baltic! We found out about different types of bridges, we drew the bridges over the River Tyne and we all designed an built a bridge that would support the weight of a steam train. We showed great team work and creativity, as well as demonstrating excellent design and engineering skills.
Our Harton Primary Elmer has taken over the Customs House, as part of the Great North Elmer Parade. Designed and painted by pupils at our school!
Year 3 found out that Stone Age man used to paint animals, hunters and their hands. They used minerals to make their paint.
We are learning about Henri Matisse in Year 4 and have been commenting on his paintings and collages. We think our own collages are very striking!
Our Elmer sculpture is complete! It has been collected and is off to join the herd. Look out for our Harton Primary School sculpture, called ‘Proud to be me!’ during the summer holidays. The trail will begin in August. A huge thank you to every child that completed an Elmer design! The children have spent so long painting the sculpture and making sure it looked it’s very best before leaving our school. It looks AMAZING!
