Year 6 artwork inspired by David Hockney
Year 6 have created some beautiful work inspired by David Hockney. David Hockney’s ‘A Bigger Picture’ is a body of the artist’s most recent work, spanning 50 years and focusing on the artist’s return to the UK from California and his native (West) Yorkshire.
This body of work demonstrates Hockney’s exploration and fascination with the depiction of landscape through oil paintings, ipad paintings, charcoal drawings, sketches, digital video and collages. The children learnt that collages are artworks created by carefully selected smaller images and that a montage is a singular image created through the combination of smaller images (including photographs). The children worked individually to create their own landscapes and then worked collaboratively in groups to make a montage of different images of the playground. Observing them work together was joyful, such intense concentration and focus and excellent teamwork and consideration towards others. Fantastic work Year 6, on many different levels!
