Painting With Science, Story-Telling With Shadows & Drawing With Light

Posted: 25th February 2021

To name just a few of the creative exploits our students have been up to in the first week back! Exploring definitions of standard art practices such as drawing, painting and story-telling. Must we use just a pencil to draw, a paint brush to paint and a pen to write?

Year 1 have proven that you can draw with air, with the shadows and reflections made by hanging installations inspired by the Artist Alexander Calder.

Year 4 have been making artwork out of scientific experiments, exploring the process of emulsification through oil/paint/water paintings and marble prints!

Year 5 have been writing stories from the shadows, using their perceptive skills to observe images and figures in the shadows. They developed on this by creating stop-motion animations with the shadows made by their toys and editing them together with their eloquently read stories.
