St. Peter’s Art Vision
Valuing the creative journey, instilling creative confidence and a love of the visual arts.
We've sprung into the spring term with a mix of creativity and colour!
Year 1 have been experimenting with pastels and colour-mixing with primary colours; Year 2 have been making colour wheels using primary and secondary colours and mixing their own colours; Year 3 have been mixing colours to paint their modroc animals and making drawings that move; Year 4 have finished their colourful ink-wash concertina books and have made some paper sculptures; Year 5 have made colourful surrealist collages, automatic drawings and 3D sculptures and Year 6 have colour-mixed painted backgrounds to use for collage in their War Horse maquettes.
We are giving all of our children the opportunity to enter a county art competition
with the theme, 'The Colour of Nature,' which will be judged in spring 2022.
Children were encouraged to think about nature all around them to produce a piece of artwork which captures the colour of nature. Through this competition, we would like to promote the health and wellbeing benefits of experiencing nature, as we are aware that children’s mental, physical and emotional health and wellbeing are improved by
being in and looking at nature.
At St. Peter's, we've recognised the challenges that creating art at home can bring. As work has shifted from classrooms to online, physical space to work and having few art materials, can all be obstacles to creativity and the visual arts.
With this in mind, we've started the spring term by making our own handmade sketchbooks out of scrap and recycled materials in KS1 and KS2. Not only are these books free to make, they're a place for exploring the world through drawing, writing, collecting, sticking, collaging, sorting, recording and playing with ideas.
