Erupting Volcanoes in Year 4!

This week, year 4 have painted 'Erupting Volcanoes' in Art and developed their paint skills. We have been studying all about the Roman Army and we discussed the tragedy of Pompeii. Pompeii was hit by an extreme volcano eruption and stayed frozen in time for thousands of years. Once an amazing city in Italy, Pompeii was destroyed when the volcano Mount Vesuvius erupted. 

While painting, many used a mixture of thick and thin brushes to get different painting effects. Some children used 'dry painting' which is when you use minimal amount of water (more paint) to paint and build up texture. Truly, these volcanoes were amazing year 4!

"Its really important to blend colours so that the painting looks realistic" -Aimee, Ash 

"I used different colours to get an obre effect. it looks really cool."- Chelsea, Birch.

"I used all the bright colours on my painting because I wanted it to stand out and explode on the page"-Tavia, Larch

Well done. What fantastic artists we have in year 4!
