Our Artist in Residence Programme
Each year we set aside a budget to engage an artist to work with all pupils from Y1-6 to produce an art installation. This year we employed Ky Rice, who worked with the children to create our Learning Behaviour Panels. These are displayed along the wall on the field side of the school. The Panels are metal, worked with enamel and have been fired. All the children had the chance to work on their own initial designs and then the Gifted and Talented art group were able to transfer the designs to the panel and use the enamels.
This academic year we intend to work with a textiles artist and the following year on a sculpted piece.
We hope to enhance our curriculum by providing this opportunity for our pupils to engage with an artist and create an installation. We also plan for this work to be displayed for our current pupils and the next generations to appreciate.We hope to be part of the Artsmark programme in the future.
