ballet-rehearsal-on-stage by Edgar Degas -1874
In this splendid masterpiece, French Impressionist Edgar Degas show the dancers in a different way. The dancers are not only dancing but they are stretching and yawning. Though all of the dancers shown are dressed uniformly, their faces are not uniform. Every dancer has a different facial expression, The dancers do not convey the beauty typically seen on the stage. Yet, it is a very delicate and beautiful painting.
After Edgar Degas - 'Ballet Rehearsal on stage'
This beautiful multi-media piece is made up of recycled paper, tissue paper, charcoal and chalk pastels. The young artists of Year Six developed this after several weeks in a after school club with myself. The delicate Ballerina's tutu is made up of pleated newspaper.

The DT WeatherVanes Project
Key Stage One Design Technology. After researching various designs of weathervanes, pupils worked from images of animals to begin their chosen animal theme. Here we can see a deer has been re-created from a drawing. Medium: Plywood.

These paintings were completed over several weeks making reference to primary sources of the local park. Referring to primary sources rather than secondary sources means the pupils gain a greater understanding of depth and perspective!

Lanscape painting (Close up)
This creative pupil also understood how cool and cold colours disappear into the background and warm tones (such as the straw yellows and browns in this piece) come forward.
