Since 2012 we have had our very own professional Artist in Residence, Mrs Ingrid Anderson (BA Hons, First Class).
Ingrid teaches the art for our school across KS1 and KS2, developing skills in drawing and painting, printing, sculpture, collage and textiles. Each summer Ingrid organises an exhibition of the beautiful work the children create to showcase their achievements from across the year and organises master classes for those pupils with an identified talent in art and design. Ingrid is also leading us through Artsmark.
Having a professional artist working in school is a great inspiration to pupils to achieve amazing works of art
Back to school!
Our amazing children have been working hard since returning to school.
Here are some examples of the brilliant drawings they have created.
Summer term 2020 has proved a challenging time for everyone, but one thing is for sure, it hasn't affected our children's ability to create amazing art! Through guided online lessons with our Artist, Mrs Anderson, our incredibly talented pupils have powered through to create these beautiful pieces of art.
It has been a packed summer, which kicked off with our Summer Exhibition here in school. Then our wonderfully creative children joined forces with children from Greensted Juniors to represent Basildon Council in the Basildon carnival and winning 'Best Float'! To top it all, members of our choir took part in the New Town Sounds event at St. Martin's Church, Basildon, to sing their hearts out - check out our choir page for photos, news and updates. Well done Children, we're so proud of you!
Here are examples of how the pupils used the fabric in different ways to create a different print using the same print block. Some pupils scrunched the fabric, others folded it or creased it. I think you'll agree the results are amazing!
