Year 3 - Mexico
Welcome to Mexico class. Mrs Taylor is our teacher. Mrs Wilson and Mrs Wade are our teaching assistants.
We had lots of fun finding out about Spanish artists and their work on our visit to the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts.
Our ‘base camp’ room was used in the Avengers film – which looked very space age and hi-tech.
In the morning a guide showed us work by Spanish artists and we had a go at recreating them.
We saw a real Picasso sketch, and tried our hand at an Eduardo Chillida collage.
We explored sketching techniques, collage and rubbing effects.
Outside we were inspired by the sculptures that we saw.
The children were keen to sketch works of art in the afternoon that they liked.Everyone had different tastes – although we all agreed that we weren’t too keen on the Francis Bacon work!
We were also pleased to be complimented by staff and visitors at the centre, who commented on how curious and well behaved the children were.
A lovely day out!
