Ice Palace – Year 5

In Year 5 we are reading Ice Palace by Robert Swindells. In art lessons we have used different techniques to create the feel of winter.

Abstract art does not show any real shape, figure or person. The artist wants to convey his or her message by playing with shapes, colours and techniques alone.

We used a base layer of wax (cray pas and wax crayons) then used water colour to paint on top.

Do our abstract paintings give you a feeling of cold and ice?

Can you tell what we used to make our forest trees?

What else could we have used?
