A visit from Johnny the artist

We’ve had an exciting start to the year here at Thorn Grove. One particular highlight so far has been a visit from Johnny, a local artist who comes to work with us once a term.

This time we looked at the work of L. S. Lowry, a very famous artist from Manchester, who used quick brush strokes and minimal detail to create his iconic paintings. Did you know that Lowry only ever painted with 5 colours?

We had a go at recreating some of our own pictures in his style, using just 5 colours of powder paint. What do you think of the results?

Here are some of year 4s creations:
