'Could do' tasks
This week, we are looking at the artist, Alfred Wallis.
Look at his pictures in the powerpoint below, and choose one to answer the following questions about:
- What can you see it the picture?
- If there were sounds for this painting, what would they be?
- What has the artist made?
- Why do you think the artist made it?
- How does the picture make you feel?
- What shapes and colours can you see in the painting?
- Which one of these pictures would you choose to have at home and why?
Following the seaside theme, this week you are going to draw a shell and colour it using oil pastels or coloured pencils.
Look carefully at a real shell, or the pictures below. Use coloured pencils/oil pastels, especially
‘flesh’ tones such as browns, tans, pinks and beiges. Draw on dark paper if you have it.
- Write 5 newspaper headlines for a story about the shipwreck of the Alba.
- Imagine you were Alfred Wallis witnessing the shipwreck of the Alba that day in 1938. Describe when you first noticed it, what you heard, how it developed and who survived.
- Make a boat out of paper.
