Here is a wonderful connection to our project based on Edvard Munch's famous paintings called "The Scream"

Check out this video below, plus their accompanying website.

Munch said: " I felt a huge unending scream course through Nature"

Can you create a work of art inspired by this? Take a photo, email or bring to school and we can post it here!

The Scream Interpreted....

Edvard Munch and interpretation....

We have been spending time looking at Edvard Munch's very famous piece that he called "The Scream'.  A few things we are observing is how he used the space to show things off in the distance, with perspective and use of tinting and scale. We have also spent much time pondering what on earth the screamer might be screaming about. Our response to this work will entail learning some oil pastel techniques and interpreting his work to make it our own. The artists will be charged with the creation of a self portrait in which they are screaming 'for' something, or because some sort of event is occurring....stay tuned!
