What have we been up to? 

Art (17-11-2023)

In Art this term, we have been looking at Japanese Art.

This week, we have been looking at 'Notan', a Japanese design idea which focuses on the amount of light and dark space within an artwork, and where these areas are placed in relation to one another. 

The word 'notan' literally means light-dark balance.
