Children from across Key Stage 1 and 2 went on a whole day art trip at the amazing Tate Britain art gallery. They took part in a fantastic workshop by an artist in residence. The children engaged in a series of practical and gallery-based activities which they really enjoyed. For example, they looked at the artwork Curviliear Structure by Jeffrey Steele and discussed the different patterns and colours. Children then recreated the artwork using different coloured paper. They also looked at Turner’s painting Norham Castle and used pens to draw it. Children also made a sculpture out of cardboard of the place that they most love. They were encouraged to be as imaginative and creative as possible.
We all had a fun day!
