During Arts Week, Year 6 created abstract art based on the work of Sonia Delaunay. The children investigated her life and her art, paying particular attention to her use of colour and shape. They learnt about the ‘Orphanism’ movement and its place in art in addition to forming their own opinions on her work. Finally, inspired by the Bal Bullier, the children created their own version of the ‘Bal Bullier’ using colour to portray mood and atmosphere. The children fully embraced the week and have grown to understand and appreciate Delaunay’s famous quote…”Colour is the skin of the world”.
