Year 4

Roman Art and Architecture - Art & Design Autumn 1 2019

Working with Miss Rogers, Year 4 began by researching general Roman architecture.  The children studied the 3 different types of Roman columns (Doric, Ionic and Corinthian) in detail. They then drew lots of detailed, notated sketches and used different grades or tones of pencil, to shade their own designed columns. Year 4 used this as a starting point to then design their own clay pots. Everyone made a thumb pot using clay, and then carved and moulded details.  The finished pots were all unique and beautifully decorated with carved designs!
