In Year 5 we have been looking at the most famous and valuable painting in the world. We took a look at some funny re-imaginings by other artists and children around the world. Our assignment was to modernise Mona! We looked at the original attributes of the painting, such as clues which told us about Mona and replicated them in our work. We had to have a background, too. Here is a sneak peak, from both studios of work in progress!
Some finished Modern day Mona's from Pok Fu Lam!
Our inspiration for these works of art is Wassily Kandinsky. He was a Russian abstract artist, one of the first abstract painters, in fact. He was said to have incredible senses which smelled light and heard colours.
We started our lesson by watching this gorgeous video about a little girl who begins as a reluctant artist. Vashti learns that great art comes from tiny things. Then we started our own art from a tiny dot, listening to peaceful music and planning our colours in tonal ranges. We showed our blending skills and tried to create gradients from shade to shade and light to dark.
In Year 5 and 6 Walt has grown up a little! We have space in our reflection pages now to talk a little more about our work.
Here are the students at Kowloon Bay working on their pieces:
If you are amazingly observant, you will have noticed that our current blog background is one of the finished Kandinsky pieces! Congratulations to Sophia Lowe of 5-SS who has been selected as our first background artist.
