French Fauvist artist Andre Derain was the inspiration behind today's colourful class! We asked the children to select bold and bright colours when bringing their landscapes to life. Using local scenes of Kennington as their 'canvas' they used oil pastels to block in the facades and skies. The results are really fun..a very effective way of bringing the scenery to life!
American modernist painter, Stuart Davis and his work from the 40s & 50s helped influence our young creatives. We highlighted how music, colour, and symbolism helped him create his work and our artists here did the same, using their own cut outs and collage.
