In this very practical lesson, we will be taking a look at some photographs of the oldest paintings known to mankind. We will then move on to replicating a cave painting ourselves by working with a parent or carer to create natural paints from items we can find in our kitchen.
Unit Overview: Painting
Have you ever painted without using a paint brush? In today's lesson we will be exploring artists who use unusual techniques to paint, and as a result, create unique marks, patterns and textures. You will experiment with lots of these techniques later on in the lesson, and you might need a parent or carer to support you in finding some materials around your home to do this.
In this lesson, we will learn about primary colours and investigate what happens when we mix them.
It's time for an end of unit project! For the next 2 lessons we will be picking up from where we left off in lesson 1 on 'Cave Paintings,' using our experiences from lesson 2 and 3 to help us create a masterpiece cave painting. The only difference is; your cave painting will be completely unique to you and include drawings of familiar sights and animals to you in your local area - so no mammoths! Get your creative hats on, it's time to get stuck in!
In this lesson, we will finish the painting unit by making our very own modern day cave paintings. We will be continuing our work from lesson 4 and will explore the use of sketching, stencilling and printing to make cave painting unique to you.
