Art Showcase at Stockport Art Gallery
In summer of 2017, the children of St Thomas’ were very proud to showcase our artwork at our very own Big Art Show at Stockport Art Gallery. During the year, children had opportunities to work with Artists in school and at workshops at the gallery to develop ideas through a variety of stimulus relating to their class texts.
Children then responded via medium that included weaving, printing, collage amongst others and created an exciting and inspiring display of artwork of which we were very proud!
Due to the outstanding Arts provision planned and delivered across the curriculum to all children, St Thomas’ are very pleased to be working towards a Gold Artsmark award. Artsmark is the creative quality standard for schools, accredited by Arts Council England:
This special school focus on excellence in the Arts including Art, Dance, Music and Drama allows children rich opportunities for creativity and enriches their ability to understand and express themselves in a variety of ways. They also have the opportunity to engage with and take part in enriching high quality live performances.
Thank you to every one who took the time to visit the Art Gallery and view the wonderful work created by our children. For those who did not manage to visit, here are a few pictures we would like to share with you from our showcase!
