As part of Welsh Week, we have been finding out about the work of Charles Byrd, a Welsh artist from Pontypridd. He was 101 when he died. He made 3D Magical Machines using pieces of wood and things you might find around the house. We have made our own models from recycled materials. We worked in twos and threes to make a model, talking and sharing ideas.
As part of our ‘Wonderful Wales’ topic we have been finding out about the work of Martin Evans, a Welsh artist from Aberdare. He loved the houses of the Welsh Valleys but took inspiration for the bright colours he used from his time living in New Zealand. We have used pastels and coloured paper to create Welsh houses in our 2D work. Everyone in our class liked the work of Martin Evans.
