Creative Arts Week and Enjoy Art (February 2017)

Enjoy Art

During Creative Arts Week (5th-9th February) all pupils from Year 1 to Year 6  took part in 'Enjoy Art' therapeutic art activities. They created individual pieces of art & developed skills for understanding and managing emotions.In 'Emotion Clay' other natural materials such as herbs, feathers, shells and pebbles were used along with the clay. Paint of different kinds, oil pastels, felt-tips and coloured pencils were used for 'Take a Line for a Walk'. Silence & calming music helped  pupils to relax and enjoy being artists, and to concentrate fully on their own ideas and their own creations. The delight felt by one Year 1 boy was shared by many Earlham pupils. This is what Yaqub said about working with clay, 'It's like a volcano...I'm going to explode because I'm super, super happy!'.
