Art week- June 2017
The Cheam Art week theme was ‘Natural World’. Many pupils took part in the Art competition and we received some amazing pieces including drawings, canvases, photos, collage and sculptures. The main prize winners were Imogen K (Senior), Maya K (Middle School) and Annabel H (Junior). Many children took part in workshops ran by visiting artists. Jenny Muncaster from the Colour Factory in Winchester ran a fun and inspiring mixed media workshop. We sponged on layers of acrylic paint then we used water sprays and masking tape to create patterns. The final touches were added using vintage images, glitter and gold leaf. Victoria Pilkington also ran workshops and the children made leaf masks and painted pebbles. All in all it was a great week and we were so impressed by the quality of the artwork and the enthusiastic response from the children.
