All the children in Key Stage 1 and 2 have taken part in four different sessions and have practised a wide range of art techniques and experiences, such as; watercolour painting, oil pastels, sketching with graded pencils, collage, colour mixing with poster paints and many more.
On Thursday 20th June parents and carers were invited into school to take part in our ‘Big Draw’ session in the school hall from 8.30 – 9.00am. Everyone got involved in creating a large scale collaborative piece of art work by choosing one of the objects on display to draw using the pencils or felt tips and then combining their sketches on our large rolls of paper.
On Friday 21st June, parents and carers were invited into school at 3.15pm to take part in our ‘Five Lanes Art Trail’. Everyone was encouraged to have a walk around the school corridors and view all the new pieces of creative work around school, as well as the fabulous work created by the children during our art week.
They were then asked to complete an ‘Art Trail’ sheet, where they could take a moment and reflect on the pieces of work around school. Suggestions were given to everyone to - give it a score out of 10, write what you like or dislike about it, comment on how they thought it was created and what it was made from.
Parents, carers and children were all told that a prize would be given to the most descriptive trail response sheet. If you were able to join us on either of these days we hope you all enjoyed looking at the amazing range of creative work on display.
