Time to check out the Baroque art movement this week. The word Baroque comes from Portuguese. There, barocco means something like 'strange'.
We looked at examples of Baroque art from some of the masters Caravaggio and Rembrandt. This was a time for lots of drama and emotion in art. Paintings included the full range of human emotions from rage to joy. We also studied the use of light and dark.
The kids looked at their faces in mirrors and practised a range of emotions before starting their self-portraits.
