TCAT Art Round-up - November 2021
At The Consortium Academy trust, we value the arts as they encourage self-expression and creativity and can build confidence as well as a sense of individual identity. For our EYFS learners, art can also improve co-ordination and grip strength. Therefore, it is important to highlight the designs our learners create, and the hard work and dedication that has gone into them.
Welcome to the first of our monthly TCAT Art Exhibitions.
Firstly, Alex S from Wolfreton created these impressive portraits of the Art team and Mr Ashdown kindly montaged them together.
At The Hessle Academy, Miss Moore has been inspiring Year 9 with activities influenced by Andy Goldsworthy, a land artist. They have been creating gorgeous works with autumnal leaves and other natural resources and asking the question, “Does good art have to be permanent?”
The Ducks have been utilising innovative technologies to create their art! Croxby Primary use Purple Mash - a cloud-based platform for primary-aged children – to support learning across the curriculum.
Year 9 at Howden have been working on these stunning insect wing projects in Art with coloured pastels.
The Winifred Holtby Academy KS4 hub created poppy wreaths in honour of Remembrance Day on the 11th of November.
Lastly, at Keyingham, Edith created this fantastic sign for the HUB alongside TCAT graphic designer, Matt. She has big dreams of designing a video game one day- hopefully, this was good practise!
Well done to all the creative learner featured, we are looking forward to December and seeing your festive pieces!
“Creativity is critical thinking and without it how are you going to open up and ask harder questions? Art opens up those… possibilities to think beyond what we already know.”
