In Year 1 we have been looking at art from the 1970s. We have learnt about the artist Robert Smithson. He makes huge, spiral sculptures out of natural materials such as rocks and earth. We used sand to make our own spiral images based on his work.
We also looked at the artist Frank Stella who made artworks called ‘3D paintings’ out of paint, card and metal. We made our own ‘3D paintings’ using card and junk modelling materials.
As well as this, we have looked at 1970s design. We have focused on wallpaper design and have learnt about the different colours and patterns that were used in the ‘70s. We printed our own designs using polystyrene tiles and paint.
