Art

Our aim is to equip children with a variety of skills and experiences to allow them to become proficient in drawing, painting, sculpture and other art and craft techniques. We build upon prior knowledge from Nursery through to Year 2. We do this by providing a stimulating environment with positive attitudes towards art, developing exploration, creativity and imagination as a form of communication and expression and developing skills such as observation, perception and manipulation of media, materials and tools.  We also provide opportunities to develop the skills which enable children to evaluate their own work and those of other artists, including those from different times and cultures.  We also aim to ensure children know about great artists, craft makers and designers and understand the historical and cultural development of their art forms.

Arts Week 2017

Arts week takes place during 3rd April to 7th April 2017.  Our theme for the week is 'Bears' to tie in with the launch of Birmingham's 'Big Sleuth' project. Our theme for the bear sculpture is based upon the sun.  Also known as the 'Sun' bear our inspiration has been taken from artwork based around images of the sun.  Many artists have produced colourful and striking images with which our children will become familiar with during Arts Week.  During Arts week each class will take inspiration from an artist and every child in school will use the artist's style and medium to create a bold 'sunshine' design of their own.  These designs will be used to decorate the 'bear' Sculpture.

 

Arts Week is not just about creative work but the performing arts such as drama and music which play an important role throughout this week also.  It's hopeful our 'Bear' themed Arts Week will get the juices flowing and release the creativity inside every one of us!

DATE SET FOR THE BIG SLEUTH 2017

10 July – 17 September 2017

After months of hi-bear-nation, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity and Wild in Art are pleased to announce Birmingham’s The Big Sleuth will launch on Monday 10 July.

The highly anticipated free, 10-week public art trail, named because ‘sleuth’ is a group of bears, will see Bear-mingham engulfed in colour with up to 100, 165cm tall sculptures taking to the region’s streets, parks and open spaces.

Showcasing the artistic and cultural diversity the city has to offer, the family-friendly trail is intended to inspire residents and tourists alike to get active by walking, jogging, running or cycling The Big Sleuth Trail.

Located across the city, with satellite trails in Solihull, Sutton Coldfield, Sandwell and at Resorts World, the fantastic spectacle will culminate on Sunday 17 September.

 

We now know where 'Ray' is going to be displayed as part of The Big Sleuth Trail around Birmingham.  You will be able to see him positioned in The Custard Factory.  Please have a family day out and enjoy the colourful experience.
