Turing Team ~ Remembrance Day Activities

As part of our Team Day activities in Turing, we have been combining the work of Pop Art with Remembrance activities for this time of the year.

Some children used fruit and vegetables to make poppy printing. These were in bright vibrant colours just like the Pop Art artists we had looked at. Other children designed “Pop Art Spitfires” adding vibrant colours to their work, making sure to use the colour wheels to find complimentary colours too.

Children in Turing team also had a chance to look at Pop Art lettering, often seen in the Marvel Comics too. We tried replicating this style, using remembrance words to add to this design.

Leave a comment below to let us know what you think of the designs we created!
