We were so pleased to welcome so many parents, carers and community members into the Academy, who came along to view the wonderful art produced by the children this term. It was fantastic to hear the children talk about their work so enthusiastically and with great pride in their achievements.
Each year group completed a sculpture project in preparation for the exhibition. These included the study of Alberto Giacometti in Reception which inspired group animal sculptures. In Year 3 the children were inspired by the colours and patterns used by Tanzanian artist Edward Tingatinga to create their masks. In year 1, children created a fabulous interactive sculpture inspired by Piet Mondrian as well as studying The Snail by Henri Matisse. The Eco Warriors and other talented artists also took part in a bird sculpture workshop led by Oathall Community College art teacher Mrs Sweeting. Thank you to Ms Cottingham for inspiring the staff with ideas and the PTA who funded the materials, making this celebration of art possible!
