Today we looked at some Brazilian art and artists that will feed into our art side of our current topic: Brazil.
The class members of Dyson elected that we should follow the modernism style of art shown by Beatriz Milhazes.
Alicia, Jack and Lily found this video today: Beatriz Milhazes. We watched it in class, and discovered some great things, which were:
1) Her art is: vibrant, well-detailed and decorative. She draws her inspiration from two colours within Rio de Janeiro: green (from the trees) and blue (from the waves upon Copacabana Beach). As well as this, her inspiration comes from three main artists and another two that she mentions in the video above.
2) The method of layering different paints through plastic printing to create a very vibrant effect.
3) How inspirational she is – after 25 years Beatriz still believes she still hasn’t perfected her art. Also, she believes that art is getting harder for her, not easier. A great example for learning and persevering! Definitely an industrious learner.
Entering our world of art we created a topic that related to rivers.
Firstly we explored water colouring by mixing colours to make shades of that certain colour. Our educating teacher mentioned the information to the class. We all excelled in our water colouring art and designed are very own imaginative creations on to our sheets of paper.
When our imaginations were on our paper we tried to critique our work and we managed to improve each time and made all kinds of different drafts . We also added a caption to our images that was related to the picture.
“Every time we persevered it got better and we heard the motto of practise makes perfect.” -Kasey Wright
“We were inspired by the story of Austin’s Butterfly when he was determined to get his butterfly right.” – Lucy Brooks
“Our work didn’t let us down and our images was just perfect to me but maybe not to others.” – Alicia Lam
“The mind is the best weapon you could possibly own.” – Kevin Guan
“Failure is the opportunity to begin again, more intelligently.” – Kansi C/Henry Ford
This has been our art this term. Thanks for reading our blog.
