On Wednesday, the whole of year 6 took a visit to the Sainsbury Centre at the UEA to do some work based around our art topic of this term – Brutalism. Throughout the day we got to explore the art centre and look at the architecture as well as some of the pieces of art in the gallery. We were able to compare the buildings we looked at (such as the famous Ziggurats by Denys Lasdun) to the work we have been looking at by Zaha Hadid. We noticed lot of similarities such as the use of straight lines but also many differences which made their work unique. The other activity we took part in on the day was a workshop by some of the staff at the centre, where we got the chance to try out some new art techniques using Gel plate printing. Using the gel plates, ink and photographs of the buildings in the UEA, we were able to create pieces of printing art and then we folded and cut them to make buildings of our own.
