Good afternoon P4J. I hope you are all well.
We are coming to the end of our learning on Charles Rennie Mackintosh. We have looked at the style he used in the interiors of his buildings (remember the rose and the lines) and have thought about his role as an architect.
Today, we are going to look at some of his paintings.
Use the link below to have a look at the paintings called ‘Mont Alba’ and ‘The Road Through the Rocks, Port Vendres’. What can you say about the colours, the use of lines and the general style and theme of the paintings.
One of the the styles of art Charles Rennie Mackinstosh was associated with was called ‘Art Nouveau’. Find out a bit more about this style. You might use the following links to help.
(You can see another one of his paintings in this link. Are you starting to see some similarities or a theme?)
You’ll have discovered that paintings in the style of Art Nouveau, used certain colours and lines. Often they were inspired by flowers or plants.
Charles Rennie Mackintosh also created a number of pieces of art featuring plants and flowers. You can see an examples of these here:
Your activity this week, is to do some painting or drawing of your own inspired by the works of Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
Here are your options:
Create a landscape similar to those seen in the paintings ‘Mount Alba’ or ‘The Road Through the Rocks, Port Vendres’ or others you have seen whilst you have been researching. Use similar colours to those you can see in the paintings. Think about the style of lines used.
Look more closely at one of the flower paintings and re-create one of them. You should think carefully about the colours. You could use paints or coloured pencils.
If you would prefer, you can go back to the rose design and bold lines we looked at early on and use these ideas to create your own artwork.
You might have enjoyed the design work from last week. If so, this week, instead of completing one of the activities above, you might like to practise your drawing skills again this week by creating your own version of this design by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. (Windyhill, Kilmacolm).
It would be lovely to see your artwork on your ‘Sharing our Learning’ channel on Teams.
Keep typing! You should be getting good at using both hands by now. I’ll be popping in to check once we are back at school! 🙂
I hope you all have a lovely day!
