Year 4 Art

This half term, Year 4 have been learning about the work of Brazilian artist Beatriz Milhazes.  Her artwork is inspired by nature and the beauty that surrounds us.  With an art studio next to the Jardim Botanico (botanical gardens), in Rio de Janiero, a lot of her designs include images of the plants and flowers that grow there.  She uses all kinds of materials to create collages which include abstract patterns and floral motifs. 

We learnt about abstract art and the effective use of complementary colours, as well as developing our drawing and cutting skills. We created our own collages, inspired by Milhazes work.
