Art

Art, craft and design embody some of the highest forms of human creativity. A high-quality art and design education should engage, inspire and challenge pupils, equipping them with the knowledge and skills to experiment, invent and create their own works of art, craft and design. As pupils progress, they should be able to think critically and develop a more rigorous understanding of art and design.  They should also know how art and design both reflect and shape our history, and contribute to the culture, creativity and wealth of our nation.

Artist in residence

This year, our school will be working with Joseph Venning as an artist in residence. Joe is a talented, modern artist who has worked in a number of schools across Wirral as well as many established businesses. Joe will be creating an original piece of art which is representative of the school and the area of Moreton. In addition to this, Joe will be running a workshop with children throughout the school to incorporate their ideas into the mural. Please see the attached pictures of the examples of work Joe has created. If you wish to see any further pieces please visit his Facebook page: Joseph Venning Artist.

Arts Award 2018

Following on from the success of last years art award journey, we will be entering another year group to undertake the Art Award Discover award. This is an award recognised by Trinity College London and recognises the work of children going above and beyond in the art work. The children will visit the Williamson Art Gallery in Birkenhead as part of the journey to gaining the award and will complete a series of follow up tasks back in school.

Arts Award Discover is an introductory award open to children and young people aged up to 25.

To achieve an Arts Award Discover, children and young people collect evidence in an individual arts log of their experiences of:

  • participating in arts activities
  • researching artists and their work
  • sharing their arts discoveries

Whole School Arts Week

Arts this week this year will be based around the topic 'Sanctuary' and will link with our journey to gaining the International Schools Award. The school and the children are this year focussing on becoming a 'School of Sanctuary' where we will recgnise individual differences and accept all those who may need help in our local community. Each class will be given a theme to work around and will produce art work that will be displayed around school to show the welcoming nature of out staff, children and families.
