Year 3 have been looking at the work and life of the Austrian artist and architect, Friedensreich Hundertwasswer.
Hundertwasser was known for his use of colour, shape and line within his paintings which made them so interesting to look at. In his painting you can see his ‘lollipop trees’ and his houses designed with ‘onion roofs’. He designed houses that fit in with the landscape surrounding them,
This got our Year 3 children thinking about landmarks across the world. Pupils were each given a different landmark to recreate into a Hundertwasser style painting – from the Taj Mahal to the Colosseum and from the Statue of Liberty to the Golden Gate Bridge!
Created on translucent paper, the children’s artwork is now displayed in the Foyer window looking onto the Headteacher’s lawn, and we think you will agree, it makes a wonderfully colourful display!
