Artists of the Week

Year 5 have been studying the work of Canadian illustrator, Kass Reich and Italian ceramicist, Michele Fabbricatore, who are both inspired by nature and well-known children’s stories. After focusing on Fabbricatore’s Noah’s Ark sculptural work, pupils set about creating watercolour paintings of animals which could have been part of the biblical story. Congratulations to Robert V and Elliot K who created these lovely images of a koala and owl and were chosen because they consistently worked hard and remembered to allow some of the white paper to show through some areas of their design, which gives the illusion of light.

All Year 5 are now working in clay, creating three-dimensional Noah’s Ark windows with their animal peering out. These will form part of a large-scale installation inspired by the Biblical story.
