Year 3

Arts Fortnight in Year 3 has centred on the 1990s.  The children have really enjoyed exploring the work of three particular artists who became famous during this decade.  They have created 2D and 3D pieces of art individually and have come together as a class and as a year group to create 3D work and a dance. In addition, they have researched one of the artists, created a PowerPoint and written a biography about their artist of choice.

Nancy Stahl

Nancy is an American who was one of the pioneers of digital art during the 1990s.  The children have created a piece of 2D art using pastels taking her animal pictures as inspiration.  In addition, they have created pixel artwork which also reflects her use of technology in her art.

Banksy

Banksy’s use of stencils to create his graffiti works on public buildings was inspiration for the children to create another piece of 2D art.  Using stencils, the children sprayed paint in different colours to create the shading and style of a Banksy work.

Frank Stella

Frank Stella started out as a minimalist artist whose style developed and became ‘hard-edged’ - the shapes and stripes in his work had straight hard edges.  The children have used his bright colours and abstract style to create a 2D piece, small individual pieces of 3D work, bigger class pieces and a whole notice board piece as a year group.

The children have also each created a tie-dye t-shirt in the acid colours so popular during the 1990s and have performed a dance to ‘Prince Ali’ from Disney’s Aladdin which was released in 1992. The recording of their dance will be uploaded to their Microsoft Teams account for you to watch.
