Peter Thorpe – in Year 5, we have blast off!

Peter Thorpe is known for his art work that features rockets and elements of space. This week, we have continued our learning all about space-themed abstract art. We focused on the abstract space artist ‘Peter Thorpe’, who is well known for painting rockets.

In the previous lesson, we analysed some of his works and then practised skills to develop tone, tint and shade by layering colours with pastels.

Take a look at how the Year 5 children used pastels to create an abstract background and foreground based on a setting in literacy.
