Art & Design

Earlier this year, St Luke’s began an exciting journey called ‘Artsmark.’ Artsmark is an award given to schools that demonstrate their commitment to embedding arts and cultural provision at the heart of their school. We aim to provide a range of opportunities for the children  that will inspire them across Art, Music, Dance and Drama. Artsmark will enhance creativity for the children and in turn will aim to build confidence and resilience.

To kickstart this journey in the summer term, we had our first 'Arts Week' where we spent the week off timetable participating in a range of creative activities linked to our class topics. 

We welcomed an Artist into School who worked with each class and helped us to develop our painting skills. We became sculptors and used wire, pva glue and tissue paper to create individual fish, spacemen, Greek vases and tortoises. Mrs Williams, a fantastic dance coach, worked with each class to create dances linked to their topics, and we also enjoyed drama and musical performances throughout the week. To celebrate our fantastic work we had our own 'St Lukes Art Gallery', where we invited parents in to see our creations. 


We were very proud and excited to then have our week displayed in Castle Park Art Gallery, amongst work of other real life Artists.

This Autumn term, we focused on the theme of 'Remembrance' for our whole school Arts project, due to it being the centenary of World War One. We became Sculptors again and every pupil in the school created their own wire poppy and decorated it with tissue paper. Each class also planned and created their own individual pieces of Art with the same theme. We invited parents in to share a special remembrance assembly with us, where we shared our commemorative pieces.


Alongside whole school Art projects, classes have also been busy creating their own art work specific to their topics. Visit individual class pages to see more about Art skills currently being worked on.
