The Bigger Picture - Holly Meadows Primary School

Miss Simons has been doing some Primary outreach work in the local area and visited Holly Meadows Primary School for the afternoon working with Year 6. They have spent some time in class looking at 'A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte' by Georges-Pierre Seurat and Miss Simons, with the assistance of two of her Year 13 students - Kerry Bensley and Anam Khatri, introduced them to mixing colours on the page using pointillism in the style of Seurat.  The class worked collaboratively to create the bigger picture of a modern day scene based on the painting, working on individual sections and putting it all together, as well as more comical variations of the Simpsons, Pokemon and Marvel Characters to name a few in the same pose. A fun afternoon was had by all.‚Äč
