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.
We love collaborative drawing at art club. It gives us confidence and we feel like we are playing!
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.
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.
