L S Lowry
We have been studying the artist Laurence Stephen Lowry (1 November 1887 – 23 February 1976) He was an English artist. Many of his drawings and paintings depict Pendlebury, Lancashire, where he lived and worked for more than 40 years, and also Salford and its surrounding areas.
Lowry is famous for painting scenes of life in the industrial districts of North West England in the mid-20th century. He developed a distinctive style of painting and is best known for his urban landscapes peopled with human figures often referred to as "matchstick men".
We went outside and sketched one another in the style of L S Lowry. We really enjoyed sketching in the sunshine!
This week we looked at the artist Pablo Picasso. He was a Spanish painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist, stage designer, poet and playwright. He spent most of his adult life in France. Picasso is known as one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, he is known for co-founding the Cubist movement.
We created our own sculptures in the style of Picasso.
