Immersion Rotations

During the past week the senior block has been going to an immersion rotation in each classroom. We have been learning about different artists and their style.The first artist we learnt about was a Frenchman called Henri Matisse. Matisse drew lots of portraits of his wife. We had to create a picture in the style of Matisse. Our picture was of a lady holding a guitar. His style was Fauvism. Matisse was born in Le Cateau-Cambr├ęsis,Nord,France 31 December 1869. He died on 3rd November 1954.

On Tuesday we went to room 22 to learn about Vincent Van Gogh. In room 22 we had to sketch a sunflower painting that was on this paper. His style of his painting was to make it come alive and make it beautiful. Vincent Van Gogh was born 30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890. His work included self portraits, landscapes, still lifes of flowers,wheat fields and sunflowers.

On Thursday we went to room 18 to learn about a strange man that uses different
perspectives to make a face from different angles of people faces a man named Picasso . Picasso always drew self portraits but once he discovered what will the face
look like if i drew it sideways and front so he did it. Before we drew our picture there was a clip that was on the screen and we copied it step by step. The picture was a strange face that was looking sideways and another face looking forwards.

On our second to last rotation we went to was room 19 to learn about Monet. Monet used lots of colours and made lots of interesting pictures out of it. My picture I drew was a Chicago Bulls logo but it didn’t turn out beautiful like hers. Monet was born on 14 November 1840 in paris.Her style was using lots of colours and and making look beautiful.

On our last rotation we went to Mrs Squires class to learn about Daniella Hulmes.
Daniella Hulmes always like to draw tropical pictures she liked drawing flowers and fruits the most.The picture we had to sketch was a bowl full of fruits. The hardest part was getting the right colours for the grapes. My best part was trying to make beautiful like Daniella Hulmes. My best rotation was going to room 19 to learn about the famaus
Claude Monet  because i got to draw and learn more things about Monet.
