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.
Completed Mosaic – Well done Year 5!
We had lots of help from our Year 5 children helping with our Tiger Mosaic.
In Year 5 we have been printmaking using satellite Google Earth images as our inspiration. We used oil pastels to create colour and texture and developed our own printing blocks, thinking about patterns seen on the earths surface from space.
In Year 4 we have been making boats inspired by the artist Yinka Shonibare. We explored his work and especially thought about the meaning of Shonibare’s boat in the bottle located locally to us in Greenwich Park.
We also thought about Pirates and their historically journeys to Deptford dockyard. We made our own Pirate maps.
Take One Picture
Wow! Well done Myatt Garden. Here are some photo’s of our recent Take One Picture Exhibition. Your thoughtful work has really been admired.
Art Club – Bubbles
We watched and played with bubbles at art club. We enjoyed collaborating together and sharing our skill and thoughts to draw bubbles together!
Indus Valley Pot Designs
Year 3 have been learning about ancient civilisations. We looked closely at Indus Valley ancient artefacts and made our own pot designs using graphite and soft pastels.
