Little Saints News
Since half-term, the Grades 000 and 00 children at Little Saints have been looking at the use of black and white in artworks. The children can tell you with confidence that black and white are not colours, but shades, and when white is added to another colour it is called a tint. Drawing inspiration from artworks such as Four Square (1915) by Kazimir Malevich and Thirty (1937) by Wassily Kandinsky, the children have been creating eye-catching works dominated by black and white squares. Kandinsky’s paintings were often inspired by music and for the completion of their works this week, the children listened to different songs and made marks in paint in each block according to how the song made them feel and move.
