Art Appreciation Week!

 

Year 2 have learnt about the artist Edward Tinga and have been inspired by his abstract interpretations of African animals and his bold use of colour. We created our own art work in the Tinga Tinga style, by etching our designs into pieces of lino and then printing them onto paper to create a colourful image. We hope you enjoyed our Art Gallery, below are some photos of us creating our master pieces!
