A Visit from Brian Pollard! – December 2016

Mrs.Ford arranged for renowned artist Brian Pollard to visit Laira Green to do an art workshop with Key Stage 1 pupils.


He showed the children how to create a landscape picture depicting local features found on Plymouth Hoe. The children were extremely excited about the visit and painted with great enthusiasm as Brian supported them throughout the afternoon.


The results can be seen on our display in the lower corridor. Thank you Brian!

Learning about Paul Klee

Year 1  have been studying the artist Paul Klee.

They have created their own paintings in his style. First they made marks and swirls with a pencil. Then, they painted over their marks using acrylic paint. When this had dried they used watercolour paints to fill the spaces inbetween the lines. The results are what you see below – some fantastic artwork!  Watch out for our Brian Pollard paintings next!klee
