The Perse School

Prep art exhibition open its doors

20 Jan 2016

On Monday, the Prep’s annual Art Exhibition opened to pupils, family and friends.

The artwork each year is based on a theme, which have previously included ‘texture’ and ‘colour’. This year’s theme was ‘shape’, and every pupil at the Prep has at least two pieces of work on display in the exhibition.

A range of materials have been used across the different year groups, from wax which Year 3 used to create wax resist patterns, to clay modelling in Year 6. Each project has been inspired by a particular artist or style in art.

Year 5 pupils created hanging fish, using a wide range of craft materials including raffia, copper foil, ribbon and beads. This particular project was inspired by one of Alexander Calder’s sculptures called ‘Funny Fish’. Children in Year 3 were inspired by the Green Man, using a range of textured card and paper to create fantastic masks.
