Class 5' 'wild' work in Art

Class 5 have been learning  about Fauvism which is the name applied to the work produced by a group of artists (including Henri Matisse and André Derain) from around 1905 to 1910, which is during the time our class text, The Railway Children, was written. Fauvism is characterised by strong colours and the name les fauves translates as ‘the wild beasts’. The fauvists were interested in scientific colour theories developed in the nineteenth century – particularly those relating to complementary colours that when viewed side by side seem brighter.

We hope you like these 'wild' and abstract impressions of trains that the children created to link with our heritage theme and focus on trains in the curriculum...
