Art Award Explore
Year 5 have enjoyed working towards the completion of the Art Award Explore (Entry Level Award in the Arts). First, they visited an Art Exhibition at the Box called Breaking the Mould ( the first survey of post-war British sculpture by women.) where they looked at and discussed a range of sculptures before creating their own collages inspired by the lines and textures they had observed.
Later, they explored the Box, and while they certainly enjoyed experiencing the collections, the focus was on the Box’s role as an organisation. Back at school, Carly Seller (an artist) spoke to the children about her work and then they were given the opportunity to interview her.
Finally, Carly shared carving techniques with the class and they all made their own soap sculptures inspired by the artwork they had seen earlier in the week.
A great time was had by all and we would like to say a huge Thank You to the team at the Box, who made this opportunity possible.
