Please take a look at the wonderful art work that has been taking place in Myatt this year.
We are passionate about engaging children’s learning through the arts and encouraging self expression and confidence. Every year each class has an opportunity to work with Karen Vost, our Arts Specialist teacher working on a range of creative projects, community art events, visiting galleries, working with Outreach Artists and taking part in inspiring art lessons.
Throughout the children’s journey at Myatt Garden, they will have the opportunity to gain their Arts Awards Discover and Explore certification.
Year 1 drew Kandinsky inspired concentric circles with pastels. What beautiful work, well done Year 1!
Frida Kahlo Exhibition
Wow! What a truly wonderful Frida Kahlo exhibition we had on Friday!
The work looked wonderful, so vibrant and exciting. The private view was well received and very positive comments were made about the amazing art works.
We would like to take this opportunity to say a very big thank you to all children that contributed their art work, to families who supported this project and to Ms Corker for her time and energy spent organising this exciting and stimulating project. I feel very proud of the creativity, participation and enthusiasm shown from our initial assembly introducing Frida Kahlo to the final show.
Having been inspired by Barbara Hepworth and Henry Moore, Year 4 produced some wonderful work.
Take One Picture 2019
During Take One Picture week, the children worked really hard, responding to this year’s painting “Men of the Docks” by George Bellows. The artwork they produced was wonderful and was displayed at the Lewisham Art House for the local community to view.
We made sculptures of stars and circles with our Arts Specialist teacher Karen. We had so much fun and learnt lots of new skills!
Year 6 have been studying textiles and how Tudors made fabrics. They have made their own looms and woven with yarn and fabric.
