Class 4 Visit Yardley Arts
Yesterday, we were lucky enough to spend some time at Yardley Arts.
We all really enjoyed our visit and it was a great opportunity to learn more about art and some local artists. A lovely gentleman called Simon showed us around and explained each of the artist's work. You can see photos of each of the artist's statements below. We were all delighted to see a high level of engagement among the children, with plenty of raised hands and questions!
Afterwards, Simon Tipping took us outside and explained about reusable materials such as plastic. His aim is to use this material in a more creative and environmentally friendly way rather than it going to landfill sites.
“I really like the plastic sculptures because of their height,” said a year 5 boy.
“The jewellery looked so creative, I really liked it,” said a year 6 girl.
We would like to thank everyone at Yardley Arts for making our trip so educational and enjoyable. Special thanks must go to our initial contact Sally Pennycate and the two Simon’s who took time out of their busy schedules to explain the artwork.
