Class 5: Gallery Rebels

This half-term our topic is Gallery Rebels.

Colours collide, melting together on the canvas; an impression of light, a rage of red, a lobster perched on a telephone… Come and find out about the bizarre and eccentric minds of the gallery rebels!

This half term we will be learning about art as an act of rebellion. Can you change the world with a paintbrush, a thought or an idea?

Dream the dream – or show us your nightmares! They say a picture paints a thousand words. Can you express yourself without words?

To start you off, here are a few activities I’d like you to complete. At the bottom of this page is a glossary of the vocabulary covered in this topic.

Week 1:
