Year 1 Jubilee Art

To celebrate the Platinum Jubilee, each year group represented a different decade to celebrate the Queen's reign.

Year 1 were inspired by the Swinging 60's and a touch of Andy Warhol! Each class chose a photograph of the Queen taken in the 1960's.

First we made colourful backgrounds by making a textured printing block out of bubble wrap, wall paper, foil, string, corrugated cardboard,expandable packaging, ridged rolls and hessian.

These were used to print a colourful Warhol-like background for their portraits.

Next the children traced the photographs of the Queen. Each one focused on a different image of the Queen; as a mother, as a fashion icon and as a traditional queen.

These were then reversed and retraced onto a foam board to create a portrait printing block. The children double checked the lines to ensure the ridges were deep enough to give a good print.

Finally, they children used black acrylic paint to print the portraits on top of their colourful textured backgrounds.

We are so proud of their results and how they persevered with the process.
