Year 5

During Arts Fortnight, the year 5 children have been learning all about the 80s! They have enjoyed exploring the work of three different artists and have focused on a range of art created within this decade. Each child had the opportunity to create one piece of 2D artwork and one piece of 3D artwork; everyone contributed towards a whole class piece.

2D piece of art- Kenny Scharf

Kenny Scharf is an American painter known for his work in New York during the 1980s. He has produced artwork ranging from painting, sculpture, fashion and street art. The children have explored his colourful, expressive murals and created their very own street art inspired work.

3D piece of art- Andy Warhol

Andy Warhol is considered a pioneer of ‘pop art’ and is perhaps most well known for his work in the 50s. However, during the 1980s he produced a series of screen prints of daises. It is this collection of prints that the children have based their 3D wire models on- with some fabulous results!

Whole class piece

For our whole class piece, we have taken inspiration from the artist Hunt Slonem and his painting ‘Lemurs’. The children contributed and gave great thought to the ideas behind their class canvas and have spent time working together to create one very special piece of art. These canvases will be displayed in the school for the children to enjoy.

The children have also taken part in a whole year dance performance of ‘Footloose’. It was lots of fun to practise and record, and the children were fantastic at learning the dance moves. It will be uploaded to their Microsoft Teams account for you to watch and enjoy.
