David Hockney inspired art with Reception

Newts and Sticklebacks are inspired by the David Hockney’s photo collages that Alice showed them. They are also taking inspiration from their local environment, and SPRING! They have been busy taking lots and lots of photos for two large mixed media pieces. They are starting to create the ‘backgrounds’ for their artworks by piecing together the photos they have taken to re-create scenes from the local environment – the park and the school playground. They are overlapping the photos and trying to match like with like, considering the position of the photos carefully – sky up high, middle ground in the middle, and ground down below. They are doing amazingly well and working together as a team. Watch this space for the finished outcomes!
