We paid tribute to black art history by researching an influential artist. Lois Mailou Jones was greatly influenced by African masks and the use of bold colours and patterns. In the style of our artist, we started with our mask outlines before using pastels to add bold and bright colours. Which colours did you like best?
Well done to Y3/4P children for producing a wonderful piece of art based on the famous artists Lubaina Himid.
