For our annual art trip abroad, a select group of year 6 pupils were lucky enough to visit Venice with our art consultant Andrew Mutter. During their exploration of this beautiful city, pupils participated in a workshop to make and learn about Venetian masks. They were prominent during the 13th century when Venetians would hold parties and wear elaborate masks to conceal their identities as people from different social classes mingled and danced the night away.
This year during the visit, pupils were also fascinated by the architectural detail of the city and the vivid colours of the houses in the adjacent island of Burano. Back in school, they painted the scenes of Venice using watercolour paper and water- soluble pencils to make some incredibly beautiful pictures, which have been displayed in the new theatre build and Mr Ahmed’s new office.
We held our annual school exhibition on Monday 18th July to unveil these stunning pieces of work! I’m sure we all agree that they look incredible. Congratulations to all those involved, especially our extremely talented Year 6 pupils who are leaving this wonderful legacy behind.
