Good afternoon! I hope you and your families are all well.
Last week, we learned a little bit about Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
This week, you are going to create a piece of artwork inspired by one of the designs most people associate with him.
With an adult in your house, search ‘Charles Rennie Mackintosh rose motif’ or ‘Charles Rennie Mackintosh stained glass window’ and you will see images of his famous rose design.
Practice drawing a rose in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
You might look at the image and be able to draw your own rose without much help.
However, if, like me, you could do with a bit of guidance to help you along the way, look at this YouTube clip.
The lady in the video goes on to colour in her rose. You can do that if you wish but this first activity was about getting you to practise drawing the rose.
Now that you have had a bit of practice drawing the rose, you are going to create a stained glass window design in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
With an adult, search ‘Charles Rennie Mackintosh stained glass window’ again and have a closer look.
Discuss what you notice about:
- The colours used
- The amount of colour used
- The lines – the thickness, shape and amount
- The number of objects on the design
Over to you! Use what you have observed to create your own design for a stained glass window in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Keep practising those typing skills:
I hope you all have a lovely week!
