Welcome to a new term of home learning!

This week, let's explore paper weaving. Find this video by typing 'Mrs Darlington Paper Weaving' into YouTube.

You can really let your ideas fly when decorating your strips of paper. What kinds of patterns will you create?

Home Learning Challenge - Week beginning 18/5/20 - Transient Art!

Weekly Creative Challenge - Monday 18th May

Transient art is just 'art that is moveable'.

It's about using lots of different materials to create a picture, pattern or structure. You can make it indoors or outdoors and use a mixture of man-made and natural objects.

You can record your transient art by taking a picture.

Send your pictures to Mr Rose at...

Here you will find information about how we teach Art and Design at our school. More will be added soon! For now, there will be a selection of activities to have a go at while you are learning at home. I will try to share ideas that need as few materials as possible! Sometimes a pencil and bit of paper is all you need to show your creativity...

Art Club

Mr Rose has been working with groups of children from each year group over the last couple of terms. Unfortunately, our Art Club sessions have been cut short! All the work that the children have made is being kept safe. We are thinking of a way that we can share it here, as we will not be able to have an in-school exhibition yet! Check back for more information in the coming weeks.
