Our talented Gold Class pupils have been demonstrating their creative talent by producing a number of outstanding pieces of artwork. As part of our class topic of looking at how plants grow, we have concentrated on still life painting with a vase of flowers as our subject matter. We asked the pupils to think about how a background can change the appearance of an image, as well as to observe how contrasting colours can add power to a picture. We have also talked about 3D images within our work. Hand painting has also been incredibly popular within Gold Class – the pupils have used this technique to help represent the image of birds in a nest.
