Artist Paul Priestly came into school today to give Year 1 an insight into the world of impressionist art and to help them understand more about the artist Vincent Van Gogh's colourful life and work. They spent time with Paul to develop their skills in pencil with scale and shape and then practiced using Van Gogh's techniques with colour in paint. Each child worked on their own version of the famous artists work 'The Starry Night'.
Bailey Kent from Jupiter class said " Vincent Van Gogh used lots of different techniques with swirley lines on top of each other. He moved to Paris and painted his house which was actually grey but he painted it using lots of yellow."
Fiona Elliott added " I liked painting the trees, they were like clouds."
