Arts Week

Kestrels had a wonderful time during Art’s week. They studied an African American composer – Florence Price. We focussed on her wonderfully uplifting symphony No 1 and produced some incredible African art using, calico and printing ink.
There are also pictures based on a previous artist we studied – Takashi Murakami. I’m sure you’ll agree, the finished pieces were stunning!


This term, Kestrels have been looking at the Pop Art Movement. They studied various artists and produced some pieces based on Roy Lichtenstein. The main focus for our topic was work by Takashi Murakami, a Japanese contemporary artist whose work is an intersection of pop culture, history and fine art. The children loved his styles and produced some stunning pieces, full of colour and incredible imagination. Excellent work Kestrels!
