Last Tuesday, pupils across school enjoyed and interacted with ‘The Illustrated World of Nick Sharratt’ at Leeds Central Library, as well as experiencing and appreciating the artwork next door at Leeds Art Gallery.
Thanks to John-one of our school governors-KS2’s day was captured on camera. I know the art gallery wondered what had hit them as excited pupils entered its doors and interacted with paintings, installations, prints and sculptures.
Hopefully, venturing into an art gallery will not be a one off but now a requirement when they visit a city wherever they are in the world! One pupil mesmerized by the art she saw shared: “When it’s my birthday, I’m going to ask my mum to bring me here.”
KS1 loved the day too. To see our young people pausing in front of a piece of art and commenting, smiling, dancing or pulling a face in response to what they saw definitely put a smile on my face.
