Our workshop helped us to think more deeply about the artworks in the exhibition. We talked about terms like abstract, realistic or figurative, media and how people link colours to emotions; then we matched vocabulary with artworks. Before we knew it we were able to discuss the artworks and think more about how artists communicate with us through their work.
In the introduction we shared what we knew about art. We talked about how people link colours with emotions.
We worked in teams and decided which pictures we should place our words beneath. We neded to think about our decisions.
Here are the words we placed beneath Portrait of Alison. One card was blank and we chose to write imaginative on it.
These words were placed beneathe Louise McClary’s Up the Creek
Then we used question cards to help us discuss the paintings in our small groups.
We chose the medium we wanted to work in and the colours we wanted to express ourselves with.
These were inspired by Portrait of Alison. Our first artwork was for us to take home.
Then we chose another artwork that we liked and created an artwork for the gallery.
