Art is all about children developing their creativity within and exploring their ideas through a range of techniques and experiences. Here at The Divine Mercy, we provide children with a range of opportunities to experience and explore the different forms of Art. Our school has also been involved in The Z-arts, Bright Sparks, school membership, which is a creative learning framework that enables children to have access to professional artist and tickets to children’s theatre productions. This opportunity has helped us to foster a closer partnership with Z-arts in order to create a bespoke Arts Activity Plan for our young artist at The Divine Mercy Primary School. The Arts Activity Plan responds to school themes and topics and targeted areas of development as well as bringing Art and culture to life within The Divine Mercy School.
The Best of Britain Art Project Day
All children from Years One to Six had the opportunity to meet an artist called Peter Swidrak, who is one of Britain's most popular and innovative artist. This involved a general introduction to the Best of Britain photographs and artwork which will was featured in an exhibition in the school hall. This was then followed by a version of an art treasure hunt quiz based around the exhibition. After a demonstration by the artist, the children had a chance to create their own piece of artwork.
