Each week our resident artist, Julie Forrester, has been visiting the school. She has introduced us to new art forms and has helped us to develop new skills such as critical thinking, collaboration, leadership and innovation.
We are privileged to have a school garden which in itself is a form of art and self-expression. With the help of Julie we have turned it into an imaginative, ever changing, on-site art studio! Every week the children can be seen collecting materials from the garden to use as inspiration for their artwork. They have been busy doing still life drawings, dying crepe paper and printing with foam!
Through engagement with BLAST we have achieved inclusiveness and professional development. We have also enhanced pupil well-being and made a sustainable commitment to the arts!
