Roman Art

We will be linking our Art and DT to our topic of the Romans this term.

In our DT lessons we will be making Roman Vases with modelling clay and browns, blacks and terracotta colours. We will also be making some Roman mosaics using a computer programme.

In art we will be using our sketch books to sketch and improve our artwork by cirtically evaluating every stage of the drawing process in order to create a perfect piece. We will be sketching Roman vases using the oil pastels to recreate the colours used in Roman times.We are really looking forward to creating something beautiful.

Finally we will be looking at drawing a self portrait as frequently done during Tudor times before the invention of photography. We will be sketching and using water colours to achieve this effect.
