At Chilton Academy we are all Artists
At Chilton Academy, we believe Art helps children to say what cannot be said in words – “a picture paints a thousand words”. When children are asked to talk about a piece of art work, they must reach into their poetic capabilities to find words that describe how it makes them feel.
Art can be therapy for many and provides pupils’ with opportunities to express their inner thoughts and feelings in an unobtrusive way. Art can tell us stories about the past as well as help us to make predictions about our future. You will see children engage with different media, explore colour and pattern, work in 2 and 3 dimensions and research some of the famous artists of past and present as well as those important to the North East.
Art Class Work
Year 5/6 study Propaganda Posters
Children in Year 5/6 studied Propaganda Posters linking their work to their study on World War 2. They created their own posters to give a message they felt passionate about.
Lumiere Event (November 2019)
The Lumiere Event (in conjunction with the Chilton Academy Friends) was again a very successful celebration of art and light. All children are represented through their art work and got an opportunity to look at the work each class had produced. Techniques used included stained glass, paper construction, pastels and acrylic paint.
