Eric Joyner Inspired Art
Children in Woodpecker's Class worked with Mrs Poole to create their own artwork inspired by the artist Eric Joyner. His artwork focuses on a 'Robot' theme which links with the work we have been doing through the study of the Iron Man by Ted Hughes.
The children used a range of brush techniques and paint to create a layered landscape effect. We wanted to create 'depth' within the picture. The children explored colour mixing - creating light and dark shades; thickness of brush for background and more intricate work - to create different effects.
We had a great afternoon and can't wait to finish our robot drawings to add to the brilliant backgrounds we created.
