Gothic Art is concerned with the painting, sculpture and architecture that flourished in western and central Europe during the Middle Ages. In the years between 1100 and 1600, architecture was the most important and original art form.
We framed our artwork with a Gothic window frame and made a spooky scene filled with ghosts and a creepy tree.
“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.”
– Pablo Picasso
Our project today was inspired by the artist, Pablo Picasso. Known as one of the greatest and most influential artists of our time we explored his long and varied career. We focussed in on his love of owls and showed the students photographs of Picasso with his pet owls.
Our classes were filled with colourful drawings and students were able to make many of their own creative decisions.
Our older students were also inspired by Picasso’s owls and created the ones below:
And a Halloween drawing from our student Jack, well done!
