Art printing

In art we have been learning about Ancient Chinese paintings and drawings. We studied ‘The Emperor’s journey to Shu’ and found that colour and shape were very important in Ancient Chinese pieces of art.

We looked at colouring mixing to create mood and feelings. We then looked at Ancient Chinese pottery and saw that dragons were often a feature too. This inspired us to do our own dragon drawings which we then used to create prints from. The printing was our final piece.
