Roman Art and Architecture - Art & Design Autumn 1 2017
Year 4 began by researching general Roman architecture and then studying the 3 different types of Roman columns (Doric, Ionic and Corinthian) in more detail. The children drew lots of detailed, notated sketches and painted their own designed columns using tints (adding white) and tones (adding black). The children used this as a starting point to then design their own clay pots. Everyone chose to make either a coil pot or a thumb pot, and then carved and moulded details. We then created a class slideshow (see below) of our finished designs, complete with speech bubbles for our comments! Our pots are all unique and are beautifully decorated with carved designs!
