MOST IMAGINATIVE PRIMARY SCHOOL COLLABORATIVE ARTWORK
In Art lessons this term, our Year 4 class have been working hard on abstract landscapes inspired by the work of British artist David Tress, whose work reflects the Pembrokeshire countryside near his home. Year 4 have been studying Extreme Weather in Geography this term, so this unit of work was designed to complement this. The children played with various brush marks and were encouraged to build up layers of colour. We were so impressed with the work that they produced, that we decided to enter their work for the Salisbury Schools Art Exhibition held from 10-24 February in the Young Gallery in Salisbury.
On Friday 9th of February, Natalie Clarke, Artist in Residence, and Louisa Clayton, Head of Art, attended the opening of the Exhibition. There was an air of anticipation as we hoped that their hard work might be rewarded with a prize. What they achieved in the end was fantastic: they were chosen as the ‘Most imaginative Primary School Collaborative Artwork’ in the competition. Three of the Year 4 pupils were on hand to collect their prize and to hear the positive comments from the three judges, local artists Anneliese Stoney, Charlotte Moreton and Stew Taylor. In fact, the judges were unanimous in their decision and said they all wanted the Warminster artworks on their walls! We were very proud of them. You can see the prize-winning artwork on display in the Morgan Foyer of the Prep School.
