Visiting artist in Year2

31st January 17

On 12th and 13th January, Year 2 welcomed Sol Felpeto, a visiting artist from Atrium Gallery; her style of art focuses on “PoopArttoons”, which is a mixture of art, animals and cartoons and she delivered a 2 hour workshop to each Year 2 class. The children were exposed to the work of different artists and asked to interpret the images. They then looked at traditional art and abstract images and discussed similarities and differences. After this they were encouraged to be bold and confident by experimenting with colour, shape and pattern to produce their own versions in the style of Picasso. The children thoroughly enjoyed having Sol visit them and learnt so much!
