This was a fun project that focused on creating seamless colour gradations.
First the Picassos painted the gradations ,which really can be simple for some and not so simple for others. Next they sketched a city skyline on black construction paper to mimic a silhouette and cut it out. The black paper city was then stuck on the horizon line of the page. For this we looked at pictures of Port-of-Spain's waterfront and talked about the shapes of the buildings and they got down to sketching out their building silhouettes.
I also pointed out that we were using warm colours for the sky and cool colours for the sea!
Stunning results from my Picassos! Good job kiddos :)
Be a fly on the wall in our art room! Take a look at what we do, how we do it and the smiles that I get to see week after week :)
