Art Subject Overview
In Art this half-term, we have been exploring Roman art forms and have focussed on one in particular; mosaics. We found out about Roman mosaics and explored different examples, discovering what the mosaics were for, how they were created and what subject matters the Romans liked to design. We imitated and created mosaic patterns, that were used in the borders of Roman mosaics.
We also explored a Catalan Artist called Antoni Gaudi was heavily influenced by the Roman mosaic style which gave us an opportunity to compare his style with the Roman style. These were very different! We loved discovering his vibrant and exciting sculptures and buildings that were covered in mosaic tiles. We enjoyed finding out about Gaudi and creating posters about him and we also had a go at creating a mosaic in his unique style.
