Art Exhibition and Lantern Making
We have been very creative in Class 4 this term. Inspired by our trip to the Tate Modern and the Giacometti exhibition in September, we have been working hard with Mrs Costello to create our own works of art. We are all really proud of the pieces we have produced and think our art is of a high standard! We were proud to display it in the YHPS Art Exhibition on 23rd of November and very encouraged by all the positive feedback we received. You can see some examples below.
Last Monday we had a fantastic break from our classroom routine. Together with Class 3, we spent the day at the Yardley Arts centre making lanterns. It was a great opportunity for us to learn new skills, work together and do something different and creative. Under the instruction of local artists Simon Tipping and Clare Abbat, we made lanterns in the shape of angels. This was quite a complicated process as we needed to bend and shape the willow frame before covering our creations in paper and latex glue.
‘It was quite tricky but it was fun too’ said Heather. While Harley enthused ‘It was fantastic!’
