Art

Our Art vision is to creatively explore ideas through experimentation.

 

At Alwoodley Primary School children explore and develop their skills and creativity using a wide range of media. We value the use of sketch books and encourage the importance of experimentation, exploration and pushing ideas in imaginative ways.

 

We enjoy art on loan from Artemis which we display around school showing a diverse range of styles, media and cultures.  We also love to use the artefacts from Artemis to enhance our learning across the curriculum.

 

Our curriculum is enriched by inviting artists in to school to work with children and staff. We also organise trips for the children to explore art in galleries and museums. 


We like to celebrate Art with a whole school event, whether it is Big Draw or something like The Great Alwoodley Pottery Throw Down which we held in 2016.

A few arty ideas :

Use kitchen roll as a mindfulness colouring page

Make a plastic milk bottle bird feeder

Make an Elmer the Elephant out of a plastic milk bottle

Take mindful colouring outside with chalk

Make your own play dough


 

2 cups of plain flour
1 cup of salt
1 tablespoon of oil
half to 1 cup of cold water
2 drops of liquid food colouring
Mix the flour and salt then add the water, oil and food colouring. Knead the mixture well, adding a little more flour if the consistency is too wet.

 

Why not try printing with natural materials you find on your daily walk?

Whole School Art Challenge

What is an art enthusiast to do, now galleries and museums around the world have closed their doors? The Getty museum, based in Los Angeles, has a suggestion: recreate famous works of art using household items.

Here is one of my favourites:              

 

Now it’s your turn. Choose a piece of art you like and be creative! I look forward to seeing the results.

 Email me photos and I will add them to our gallery.

 

Here’s one I made earlier!

 

 

 

Enjoy
