Artscool 2017

Once again children in year 3/4 have taken part in the Artscool exhibition at MMU Crewe.  The theme of the project this year was ‘The Link between India and the UK,’. Using this title year 3/4 focused on combining the cultures of the countries.

Over the past few weeks all of the children have worked really hard to complete their art project, which has encompassed sketching scenes of the Potteries and using spices to paint them, designing their own rangoli patterns and transferring their designs on to black paper, adding colour with lentils, coloured sand and pulses. Using the idea of the national animal being projected on to famous landmarks, the children created their own design. They had an outline image of famous British and Indian buildings and created a design for a projected image. Each picture was in the shape of the opposite country’s national animal and the children used symbols that they thought represented the country to complete them. The children then transferred their design on to acetate and coloured them using acetate pens.

The project culminated in a visit to MMU Crewe on Tuesday 27th June where 50 children represented Ravensmead. The children took part in a range of different workshops including Street dance, Junk art, drumming and visiting their work display professionally in an art exhibition.
