Arts Week - May 2022

All children have enjoyed a very creative International Arts Week! Children in Reception and Nursery have been exploring African cultures. They were inspired by the photographer Thandiwe Muriu and created their own camouflage collages. The children also made their own Maasai necklaces using primary colours and pasta threading. Class 2 have been learning all about the culture of Japan. They have created artwork inspired by the work of Yayoi Kusama and the traditional Japanese blossom trees. They have enjoyed listening to calming Japanese music whilst creating their traditional art including a recycled piece based on The Great Wave by Kanagawa by Hokusai. The children in class 3 have looked at the artist Jane Ash Poitras who created artwork related to the Cree tribes of North America. They have created paintings and their own totum pole sculptures.
