Line, Light and Shadows

This project taught the children about the visual qualities of line, light and shadow. They explored the work of Pablo Picasso and Rembrandt and were introduced to a range of shading techniques. They took black and white photographs and use pencil, pen and ink wash to reimagine their photographs in a shaded drawing.


This project has taught the children about the significance and art of the taotie motif, including ancient and contemporary casting methods.



This project taught the children about the Expressionist art movement and the 'Father of Expressionism', Edvard Munch. They explored different ways to portray feelings and emotions in art to enable them to create an imaginative self-portrait.

Mixed Media 

This project taught the children about paper crafts, papermaking and collage techniques, including paper, fabric, mixed media and photo collage. They used their learning to create a final piece of small-scale, mixed media collage.
