Abstract art by 3TM and 3MW

The children are currently studying modern art, which included a visit to the Tate Modern on 23rd October 2014.

In this lesson they viewed some abstract art and had a go at creating their own versions, first by drawing lines across a page, straight or curved and then mixing and using poster paints they filled in the shapes constructed on the page.
