Year 6 have enjoyed a fabulous Art Week focusing on the picture 'Arnolfini Portrait' by Jan Van Eyck as part of our exploration of Gothic Art.

We have undertaken a variety of activities including looking at Art History, studying the life and times of the artist, considering the symbolism inherent in the picture and re-creating the entire portrait in a collage! (That was fun!)

We also went to Clifton College to print pictures of the dog in the portrait who symbolised fidelity. Under the tutelage of the artist Mary Collet, we learnt about the technique of reversing drawings and transferring onto lino squares. We then learnt how to safely gouge out the white areas of our drawing and finally Mary printed them for us using a printing machine that was similar to a mangle. Some of us worked in school with Mrs Clements to print as well.
Please come to the Art Trail to see the results of our hardwork.
