William Morris - Designs with Natural Forms

The artist William Morris was a significant British designer, working as part of the Arts and Crafts Movement. We find inspiration in looking at his designs for furniture, textiles and wall tiles, such as 'The Strawberry Thief'. Being inspired by nature, children will study natural objects, building upon their observational drawing skills and learn to accurately replicate their designs.

Antoni Gaudí - Architecture with Natural Forms

Gaudí was a Spanish architect who took inspiration from natural shapes and forms. Linking to Year 5 Geography skills, children get to practise their observational drawing before learning to apply their sketches to redesign a new building from our local area in the imaginative colours and shapes of Gaudí's work.
