A Shipwreck on Stormy Seas

Over the spring term we have been appreciating the art made by Claude-Joseph Vernet titled: A Shipwreck on Stormy Seas.

We spent time investigating the painting, exploring language we could associate with the image and discussing how the artist wants us to feel when we look at the painting.


The children then spent time building on their previously learnt skills to create their own pieces of art, using the discussed language to set the tone of our own paintings. The children then developed stories to go along with their paintings, using their English skills to paint a picture with words as well as with paint.
