Collaborative poems capturing a groups’ freeze frame of interesting vocabulary, as well as responses to reading tasks were just some of the challenges 4SP completed and uploaded onto the art studio google classroom- thank you to Mrs Potter for driving this innovative learning. The theme was trees but the direction once again differed from the previous classes’ response.
‘Skeletal frames tangled like a knot against a grey backdrop…the forest shivers and quivers…bare limbs stand frozen in the frost…’ were just some of the phrases from 4SP’s poems that inspired Mrs Lynch’s choreography.
Their poems also provided the stimulus for their collages. The process incorporated their observational drawings, a growing appreciation and understanding of how to apply the skills of collage as well as the sheer delight of glitter! A third year graphic and design art student will build on their collage experience by working with them in a fortnight.
Once again, Friday’s celebration was a platform to share all the learning that had happened with an interested adult. The feedback was really encouraging. Here is one of the lovely comments:
“What can I say?-just fantastic! So impressed with all the children. Amazing dancing; beautiful art work;warm, lovely environment-just so impressed.”
Last Tuesday, our ACE art ambassadors, also returned to Leeds Beckett University for their final workshop. Animation, risographs, printing and book binding were the order of the day and thoroughly enjoyed by the fourteen. Hopefully their reflections from the day will be uploaded onto the art studio google classroom within the week.
