Arts Discovery Activity

Children from Year 3 and 4 were invited to take part in a half day art session entitled 'Steam, Speed and Rain'.  Turner's painting was used as inspiration and the children painted backgrounds before applying a silk screen of a steam train on top.


The aim was to give the pupils the opportunity to use the specialist art room facilities and enjoy a lesson by a specialist art teacher to enable them to experience aspects of the subject that they were unfamiliar with.


After identifying an opportunity for our specialist facilities to be used, local schools were invited to participate and Ashdene School as well as pupils from Wilmslow Grange School responded to the invitation.


Art room, art teacher and assitant.  Resources for 24 children.  4 hour session.  Zero financial contribution.


All children thoroughly enjoyed the experience and were very engaged throughout the process.  The children all produced the expected outcome of a completed painting using the techniques shown, as well as inventors sketch books.
