SMAS 20th November


2010
12.02

The first SMAS of this academic year was well attended with 36 children from Years 5-9 from both Churchdown School and our Arts Partnership schools, Longlevens, Innsworth and Churchdown Parton Manor juniors.

Alison Cockcroft helped her group produce 3D wirework sculptures, artist Kim Hill did some still life painting, whilst Barbara Disney and Karen Bunting explored different aspects of book-making.

At the same time two adult groups appreciated John Ring’s experience in helping them to produce paintings displaying knowledge of colour and space, and individual experimentation with materials and techniques to produce pieces of jewellery with Alison Harper, in a relaxing, friendly and creative atmosphere.

Churchdown Village Junior School

All Year 3 pupils have been working with Ms Rickard to make Roman mosaic chicken prints. Two large collaborative hangings in fabric have been achieved, one by each class. The pupils learned how to draw a chicken in line and interpret this into a two colour print. Many children achieved a series of successful dual layer prints which contributed to exciting and ambitious hangings/table cloths.
