PowerPoint Presentation from Meet the Teacher
Who was Franz Marc?
Marc Class are inspired by the bold paintings of the German Expressionist, Franz Marc! Marc lived 1880-1916, he is most famous for his paintings of brightly coloured animals, such as his aptly named piece, 'Blue Horse'. Many of Marc's works champion the prime colours of red, blue and yellow.
This week we got creative and tried lots of artistic techniques like; painting, printing, sketching and mixing colours!
To start, we learnt all about our class artist, and created our very own abstract pieces. To create our art work, we chose bright and bold colours (just like Marc) to make an eye-catching background, next chose an animal shape to draw around on a contrasting, brightly coloured piece of card. We carefully used scissors to cut out the shape, and stuck it to the foreground of our painting.
We even painted our hands for our 'High Five' class rules display!
