After a small break, Music + Art of the week is back!
We’d love to hear your views and thoughts about the piece(s) of music and art that have been chosen below.
4H- remember we will be discussing our Music + Art in our class assemblies on Friday- and you will earn lots of comment king stickers + TC’s for commenting before hand. Remember to get people at home involved too. We will be choosing one of you each week to choose our next music + art!
So this week’s music and art reflects our new theme- ‘Amazing Africa’
I have chosen 2 pieces of art this week- both by African Artisits.
This piece is over 200 years old…
This one is from a different country in Africa…
What do you think about these images? Let everyone know in the comments!
Here are some questions to get you thinking…
- Which piece of art do you like the best? Why?
- How do you think each piece of art was made? How can you tell?
- Is there anything that is the same about the two pieces of art?
- What do you feel when you look at each of the images?
- What can you see in each image? Look closely (you can click on them to make them bigger)- can you see anything that you think others might not have spotted?
- Do you think the pieces of art are based on what the artists have seen, or are just from their imagination?
- Can you name any of the animals in either piece of art?
Can you find any other examples of African art that you like?
This week, I have chosen 4 different pieces of music from the same group- Ladysmith Black Mambazo.
Have a listen below (the music won’t play on a ipad/iphone etc!)
What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
