The colourful animals portrayed in the works of Franz Marc are as modern today as they were over 100 years ago when he created them.
Marc’s aim was to attribute physical and emotional characteristics to the colours he chose. Pupils will consider Marc’s expressionist style and understand how, by copying the work of other artists, they can produce creative work.
By using recycled materials, pupils will be able to make vivid artwork of their own in the style of Franz Marc.
