Leaves of Southwell - Join in!
Calling on local schools and our local community to join us in our arts celebration of artistic talents, submit work for our online exhibition inspired by the carvings at Southwell Minster. Create watercolour leaves with natural paint pigments. Artist Elaine Winter has created an easy step-by-step guide of the whole process with detailed notes. Watch the video and download the activity sheet! www.oakfieldschool.org.uk/leaves-of-southwell/
CopyCAT (Children as Teachers)
We also have an exciting new music and dance project schools can join during the festival online called CopyCAT. Create collaborations in music and choreography across local organisations to create expressive nonverbal conversations within a sharing of ideas and skills.
The work spans a series of sessions in May and June - you can do a few sessions, or lots!
Sign up to take part in ‘CopyCAT’ or find out more by contacting Abbie 0115 915 3265.
The pupils at Oak Field are creating a rhythmic piece of music that they would like other schools to add to. Your task will be to complete the composition. There are no rules except for ensuring that the ‘CopyCAT’ theme is somehow represented in the music. This could be through choice of instrumentation or aspects of arrangement.
We want to support pupils to create, lead and share their own inclusive choreography and compositions. Workshops will consist of a reciprocal sharing and creation of movement through mirroring and other simple dance techniques. The project will involve joint pupil-led workshops using Vimeo Live, Microsoft Teams and Chrome Music Lab. Your compositions will then be used as the basis for a performance at our Summer 2021 Arts Festival – this will be a mixture of homemade-DIY events and (sadly) online sharing! We will provide free resource packs to aid planning.
The children at Firbeck Academy were asked to look back at the year and reflect on the positives and negatives. They than had to represent this within the frame of a paper person. These will be displayed on the fence of the school facing Wollaton Vale. They will be in the form of a paper chain to show our unity as a school. We hope that the passersby and local community will enjoy our creations.
Each class within school will have its own gallery on the school website.
The theme of Glenbrook's art week is Diversity and the title of their collaborative art piece is 'Art is for Everyone'.
It will be a display of various famous diverse artists (gender, LGBTQ, age, culture, race, disability, mental health) portraits in a pop art style.
Jubilee LEAD Academy
Jubilee have all taken part in art and our school art ambassadors have been visiting other classes to showcase year group art works. Teachers have taken part in discussions with children evaluating their own art work and discussing their art own skills, artists techniques and knowledge. Year 6 have learnt to paint in the style of Van Gogh, Andy Warhol and Levi Pinfile who is a famous book illustrator.
Year 1 and a mixed year group have also been working with Orla O’Connor from Lit Theatre for our arts award for dance and drama, which they are absolutely loving! Parents are asking us about it as the children are going home telling parents what they have been doing and to quote a parent are“full of it”!
