Art Week Day 1

Art Week Day 1!

We launched our art week with a fantastic flurry of creativity all around the school today! Children in Reception practised their colour mixing skills, whilst others created splat pictures inspired by the work of Jackson Pollock.

In Years 1 and 2, the children were mixed up across the classes, so that some were working on collages with Miss Metcalfe, painting inspired by Van Gogh with Mrs Dowker, printing with Miss Lumley or paper sculpture with Mrs Dunn!

Children in Year 3 were working on pointillism, inspired by Seurat and using oil pastels to create 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar' illustrations.

In Year 4, canvases were created inspired by Mondrian and pastel work was inspired by Paul Klee.

In Year 5 and 6, the children are mixed, so that they take part in taster sessions inspired by the 'masters' Picasso, Lowry, Van Gogh and Klimt.

We look forward to seeing you all at our exhibition, which will be on show every afternoon from Tuesday 3rd - Friday 6th November between 3.00 - 3.30pm.
