This term we dedicated enrichment week to exploring visual arts as an effective means of learning across the curriculum. We aimed to help students develop their creativity, their imagination and their cultural engagement with the arts.
We began Art Week by taking part in the international drawing festival ‘The Big Draw’ which aims to promote drawing as a tool for learning, expression and invention. Many of our parents came to take part and to support the students in a range of different workshops such as, art therapy, ephemeral art, life-size drawing, dreamscaping, sewing and collective collage.
We also took part in the ‘Take One Picture’ competition in collaboration with the National Gallery of London. The focus of this project was to cultivate skills and confidence in looking at and responding to paintings. We examined the painting An experiment on a bird in the air pump’ by Joseph Wright ‘of Derby’ (1768). Each of the workshops explored different aspects of the painting through a range of subjects such as, debating, stop motion photography, 18th Century inventions and scientific experiments.
