Arts Week 2020
We have had a fantastic Arts Week this year. The children have all had a wonderful time exploring the ‘Tree of Life’ by Gustav Klimt and letting all their creative juices flow.
The gold pens, paints and paper have been flying whilst the children had a go a loads of different art work inspired by the painting.
We’ve had sculpture in many forms – wires, clay, pipe cleaners and card.
And even an edible tree of life – beautiful and delicious, what more could you ask for?
We had gorgeous shimmering foils, creative curls and swirling fashion patterns.
The children had a go a creating their very own puppet theatres to perform their original plays
and they turned their skilful hands to some delicate watercolour painting as well.
We’ve been getting our hands sticky with paper maché
and colourful with lots of paint!
We’ve had loads of fun with poetry and patterns
We’ve been using computers and Mbots to create multimedia art work
And Reception Rossetti and Year 2 Hoberman had the chance to work with real life artist Nick Devereux on a collaborative project to create their very own trees of life complete with lots of swirls and ancient symbolism (and plenty of shades of brown!).
Lets not forget some wonderful music, playing the African drums and some drama and dance too!
All in all it’s been a fantastic week and the children have had a wonderful time. Thank you so much to all those parents who gave up their time to come in and work with a class – it really is very special!
To have a look in more detail at the art work, please come along next Friday (13th March) to our Arts Exhibition in the main hall between 3 and 5. There will be tea, coffee and cake available and lots of beautiful work to see.
