KS1 Workshops

A pupil holding some artNatural and Man-made

Pupils investigate natural and man-made materials, to discover the natural world and local environment. Their journey includes meeting singing birds, a visit to Sherwood forest and an encounter with a NASA space char. They create lines and explore detail found in nature and man-made materials through drawing, mark making and sculpture. Magnifying their artworks pupils create an immersive environment in our studio that can be recreated back at school.

Light and DarkWorking in the dark

Pupils see how artists have used light and dark to create drama and affect our emotions. Moving through the gallery, they experience the impact of a black space and the optical effect of bright lights. They enter am atmospheric old theatre to become shadow hunters and explore the changing mood from dappled light to a dark cave. Collecting ideas and recording their experiences along the way they make shadow sticks which are used to create a world of light and dark.
