Roman Art and Architecture - Art & Design Autumn 1 2018
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 used different grades or tones of pencil, to shade their own designed columns. The children used this as a starting point to then design their own clay pots. Everyone made a thumb pot using terracotta clay, 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!
