Uncovering Carlisle's Textile History with Prism Arts
project funded by
The National Lottery Heritage Fund
Year 4 are currently taking part in a year long project working with Prisim Arts to discover and explore Carlisle's links to textile design and manufacture. To keep up to date with their activities go to Jackie's blog - prismartsuppery.blogspot.com - it really is worth a look!
I popped into the printmaking workshop today where the children were exploring markmaking and monoprinting. It was lovely to see the children so engaged and their delight when they lifted the paper to reveal their prints!
Art in The Early Years
Nursery children have been doing still life pictures of flowers, they really concentrate on the details!
Year 1 have been busy creating pages for their own sketchbooks. They enjoy sketchbook challenges where they are given ten minutes to create a page on a given theme. They have also been learning how shade and make light and dark marks with a pencil.
The whole school have been working together this week to create new displays for our school hall. This term’s theme has been inspired by author Katie Pankhurst and two of her books, ‘Fantastically Great Women Who Changed The World’ and ‘Fantastically Great Women Who Made History’.
