Art Day – Spring 2


Year 1/2

First we learnt about the American painter, Tracy Miller and about her various paintings before focusing more specifically on her piece of art: The Raven. We discussed how she uses acrylic paint and various size brushes to create her art pieces. We watched an interview, where we found out that Tracy Miller was inspired by other artists and decided she wanted to be a painter at the age of 13.

Next, we looked more closely at the painting ‘The Raven’ and the colours she used. This led us to create our own colour wheel and colour mixing. 

The children then explored painting techniques before then drawing their own animal and then used all of these skills to produce their final piece.
