Art in a Day

Year Three have had so much fun this week taking part in Art in a Day. All of the work we produced was inspired by Monet. We found out the following information about him:

  • Claude Monet was born on 14th November 1840 in Paris, France.
  • He was named Oscar-Claude, and his parents called him Oscar.
  • He probably most well-known for his series of paintings of water lilies, but he also painted many other landscapes and seascapes. He produced a series of paintings of weeping willows – a tribute to the fallen French soldiers in World War 1.
  • He was an impressionist artist, who often painted the same scene lots of times at different times of the year.

We used water colours and oil crayons to create paintings that were linked to our topic of Extreme Weather. We developed our knowledge of techniques like wet on wet and flat brushing. When we painted over our drawings the paint repelled the oil and left our rain and puddles images. We used dark colour like blue and greys to create a stormy scene.
