We’ve had not one but two artists visiting Y4 this week!
The first was on Monday, when we had a special visit from Sheffield artist Joe Scarborough. He told us all about how he became interested in art and what inspires him. Did you know, he loves aeroplanes and regularly goes out with his friend in a 2-seater plane?!
He also gave us an insight into the life of an artist and explained that his main aim is for his work to grab people’s attention for at least 15 seconds.
On Wednesday, we were working with ‘fimo clay’ with an artist, who is collaborating with Wardsend Cemetery. She spoke to us about some of the interesting people who are buried in the cemetery and guided us through using the colourful clay to make them!
I was amazed by the attention to detail and realistic figures the children produced! They will be taken away to be baked in the oven, ready for an exhibition at Wardsend on the 25th June. Details of the event will be sent out closer to the day and we hope to see lots of parents and children there to see what we created!
