To kick-start our topic ‘Castles’, Year 1 Chestnut have been learning about the artist Paul Klee – specifically his painting ‘Castle and the Sun’. This amazing painting uses shapes, lines and colour to create an abstract piece of art, based on a castle at sunset.
After analysing Paul’s painting, Year 1 used various 2-D shapes and rulers to sketch their own castle and sun pictures. We then used wax crayons to colour in the shapes and make our own castle pictures. As you can see, we are very proud of our abstract artwork! As a class, we voted on the pieces of art which were truly fantastic – here are the winners!
