Key Stage 1

Year 1 Landscapes using Different Media

Based on the popular theme of the seaside, this topic gives children the opportunity to play with different ways of creating art. Using Van Gogh’s artwork as inspiration, they learn to add texture to their work and consider how to create the different tints and shades that they see, including using watercolours and shading
