Creative Arts

Each year the Year 6 children take part in a collaborative art project. This involves the children learning new skills and then leaving behind the work they have created as a gift. This is displayed  for them to see if ever they return and for the enjoyment of the rest of the school.

 

Year 6 Leaver's Art 2020

Using a grant from the South Street Trust, we were able to have sculptor Graeme Mitcheson work in Potters Gate for 3 days. (Although usually these project are done by Year 6, due to Covid19 and year 6 not being in school, the year 5's took over.)

The project started with the children drawing natural/wildlife sketches from which the work was based. Graeme worked on the large owl sculpture whilst the children all had opportunity to learn some stone carving techniques to carve the smaller images. 
The project will eventually reside in the 'well being' garden.

Year 6 Leaver's Art  2019

 

This year the children worked with local artist, Denise Jacques. She makes wonderful mosaic designs and sculptures. We commissioned her to create, with the children, two mosaic shards to be used in the new ‘Well Being’ garden that is currently being planned. Every child worked on the project helping with the designs and completion of two beautiful, sparkling glass and tile garden sculptures.
