What’s New – Term 2

Learn from the Masters

We have chosen French artist Marc Chagall for inspiration reference for term 2, 2017.
Marc Chagall’s work is very inspirational for our young students as he drew and painted enchanting stories of his childhood, whilst growing up in a large Jewish family in a country village in Russia. His work is full of magic and poetic dreaming, with compositions full of shifting planes, floating objects and inverted imagery with little or no perspective. The loving relationship between humans and animals is very strong in his work, as is the use of bold and contrasting colours. His work inspires our students to be free and imaginative, teaching them to break away from reality and draw and paint from the heart.
