Arts Week 2014!

Overton has had another creative, enjoyable Art’s Week! The Art’s Week theme was ‘Our Values’, which are:

  • Creativity
  • Challenge
  • Respect
  • Reflection
  • Independence
  • Interdependence

Each classroom provided an Art activity linked to one of the above values. The children enjoyed being with their mixed year art groups and visiting each of these classroom activities throughout the mornings.

In the afternoons, the children returned to their usual classrooms and took part in more exciting arts and crafts, linked to the values. They also designed a new school logo. Each class has voted for their favourite logo and that has been sent Mrs Wyeth as the class’ logo contribution.

The children were very fortunate to also experience a photography workshop with the artist Lucy McLoughlin. The aim of her sessions was to explore the symbolism of our school values through photography. She worked with Year R, 1, 2, 3 and 4 to take digital photographs in and around the school that captured the school values. Year 5 and 6 then edited and manipulated these photographs on the computer. Lucy has made a selection of the strongest photographs, and they will be used in the final artwork. The final artwork will be framed in 6 large picture frames, each representing one of the school values. These frames will be hung together in the library. We look forward to seeing the final artwork very soon!
