The art council have been voted in by each class. These are the pupils leading the art council this year.
This term, Art council have been busy planning an Art stall for the school Christmas fair. The children have been designing their own decorations and Christmas accessories to make and sell.
What we did last year:
Our Year 6 children made lanterns which were displayed in Pavillion Gardens during the 'Jack on the Green' Art event, run by the local council and Art group, SameSky. This event took place on the evenings of 21-23rd October. This is an example of what they made:
In the lead up to Christmas, Art council were busy designing Christmas cards to be sent to our local community.
This Spring, Art council have been busy designing posters for an Art competition run by St Andrews school. The theme of the competition is 'Diversity.' We have discussed what Diversity means to us and thought about how we can represent it through Art.
In addition, we have started to collect small pieces of blue and white plastic to create a Whale, made from recycled materials. Our Whale will be displayed in the school entrance lobby.
Art council are keen to continue to develop links with our community and we will be contacting our local shops, in Broadwater, to host our annual shop window Art Gallery in the Spring term.
