Lower Primary Art Show
Thank you to our wonderful LP Art Teachers who keep inspiring our students and unlocking their creativity!
Reception 1 artists learned that when you drip yellow, blue and red ink onto diffuser circles, new colors are created. These are called primary and secondary colors. Using ink droppers was a fun and new experience and we think the circles look beautiful!
Reception 2 artists learned that tints and shades are made by adding white and black to a color. After looking at the work by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, children created a circular artwork in the Mondrian style using tints, shades and black lines. We think they look magnificent!
To celebrate dot day, Grade 1 artists looked at Tinga Tinga art, which was founded by Tanzanian artist Edward Tingatinga in the 1960’s. Children created a bright background before cutting a Hong-Kong inspired animal from black paper. To recreate the Tingatinga style, children added a few essential white lines before building patterns with white dot stickers. We think they look incredible!

To celebrate dot-day in September, children looked at artwork from around the world made with dots. Inspired by the beautiful aboriginal art from Australia, children designed and painted their own dot mandalas. After blending their backgrounds with brushes, children built their dot patterns using Q-tips to create their dotty designs. Children chose only warm or cool colors, along with one complimentary color, before embellishing with black and white.
