Hello Year 5 and Happy Tuesday to you all.
We are still looking at the work of LS Lowry and this week I would like you to be Art & History detectives!
In the PowerPoint I have made, I have included to web links for you to watch first Lowry talking about his work, and then one that shows you his paintings in detail;like being in an actual Art Gallery (A virtual Art Gallery visit).
There are a few questions for you to find the answers to and some observations concerning the people in the paintings.
I would then like you to create your own figures in the style of Lowry.
Looking forward to seeing them.
Love from Mrs Afford

Hello Year 5,
I do hope you enjoued your VE Day celebrations and enjoyed your bank holiday weekend.
Please do send me any photographs of any art work you completed. I do keep asking but I really want to put them on the Art & Design page.
This week we are continuing to look at Lowry and his work.
Last week the focus was perspective and drawing. This week I would like you to look at the colours he used. We looked at rural verses industrial colour palettes a couple of weeks ago and I want you to look back at the PowerPoints and the pictures of his work I have already posted. then select a picture you like and paint or draw your own Lowry inspired composition. You can use any colour media you have access to.
Think about mixing and blending the colours you will need.
Look at the Colour Knowledge Organiser to help you.
This will take you more than one lesson, so I will not add new work next week

Happy Tuesday everyone.
Today we are looking at the work of LS Lowry with the focus of perspective. I have included the Still Life and Form Knowledge Organiser as there are drawing tips and skills included that you will find useful.
I look forward ro seeing your pictures. A lot of you have been emailing your work to Mrs Cooper which is fantastic to see. Please do send me your work too and I will post it on the Art and French pages.
Love from Mrs Afford x
Welcome back Year Five!
I hope you had a lovely Easter.
Thank you to Daniel for photographs of his lovely Pointillism work. I would love to see some others.
Before Easter, you were studying the style of Pointillism created by Georges Seurat. This half-term, we will be looking at the work of LS Lowry. He had his very own unique style of painting. He was a northern man from Greater Manchester who was born during the Victorian era (link to your history topic).
I have included a PowerPoint with a link to a BBC broadcast of the 1978 music hit inspired by his work and two activities for you. There are aslo links to an interview with Lowry from the 1950s when he talks about his painting.
As we move through the next few weeks, you will be creating your own Lowry-style compositions.
I look forward to hearing what you think bout his work.
Art - Tuesday 24th March
Your geography topic is 'Rivers' so I have created a PowerPoint about the French artist, George Seurat. He created the technique of Pointillism and many of his compositions are of rivers; particularly The Seine.
I would like you to look at the PowerPoint and then create your own composition inspired by his work. I have included simple instructions as well as information on Seurat and examples of his work.
Please do your own investigation into his work. I would love your feedback.
As Mrs Cooper has already said, it would be great to receive photographs of your work so we can share them with each other. Please keep any art work you produce.
I look forward to seeing what you do, Mrs Afford.
