Art Club     March 2015

These paintings are painted by a group of children from year 3-5 who go to art club on a Tuesday lunchtime.

In preparation of these paintings, we have learned about colour, the primary and secondary colours as well as mixing them with black and white. We painted our own colour wheels for this. These paintings have been inspired by the work of artist Ben Nicholson who was linked to the group of artists of St Ives in Cornwall. Ben Nicholson painted abstracts, still life and composition mixing his colours with black and white to create painting with a subdued atmosphere. We mixed all the colours on our paintings ourselves.
