Magical Woods…

Bramble Berry (our magical woodland elf) told us that in the evenings, when the sun goes down, the woods become magical. She was very excited to see some pictures by a famous artist as they reminded her of her magical woodland home.  We found out about this artist, talked about HOT and COLD colours and how we can use lines to create movement in our pictures.  We used different materials to make our trees (that we thought looked a bit like lollipops!) and I’m sure you’ll agree, everyone did an amazing job of creating their very own magical wood!

See if your child can remember:

  • The name of the artist’s work we looked at (it starts with a H…)
  • Where this artist was born (it starts with an A……)
  • Where the artist moved to (it has two words N… Z…….)

      You’re right Jack, he was a man! Correct with New Zealand too but have another guess at the country he was born in…

          Oooh you’re so close with his name Jack, it’s Hundertwasser! Give yourself a house point tomorrow.
          He was born in a country closer to Scotland… a place where people like to go skiing!

    He made the drawings with the lines. I made a drawing like his. The painting was fun.
