Art in Theme Week
The children looked at artwork by Colin Gill a Kent artist born in 1892. He became an artist for the military during the war and painted many images of soldiers at war. Later in life his work became more abstract and he painted murals around the world. While he was in Sounth Africa in 1940 working on a mural he died. The children worked together to draw a quarter of one of his paintings as untitled. They then used paint or coloured pencils to complete it. This is one of the finished paintings with all four works joined together and the original painting.
Our boomerangs won’t come back! They sure do look great though! Fair dinkum efforts all round.
