Crackley's Creative Talents Amaze Us All At
On Wednesday 18 May Crackley Hall hosted an Art Show with pupils from across the school, from Nursery up to Junior 6, revealing their amazing creative talents to stunned parents, friends and teachers.
The children’s work on display featured over 250 different paintings inspired by artists and stories from around the world. They included artwork inspired by Kensuke’s Kingdom and Hokusai’s The Great Wave off Kanagawa, the abstract work of Kaninsky, art that explored the Cornish coastline, Jim Dine inspired pieces linked to the theme of Romance, as well as art based on the work of Georgia O’Keeffe, Claude Monet, paintings inspired by sunsets and collages developed using the techniques employed by Kirsten Peters.
Working on their pieces for the exhibition has given the children the opportunity to study different artists, to appreciate their work, inspirations and colour palettes. It has linked into topics from across the curriculum including Science, English, Geography and even Maths.
Many parents and children attended the exhibition to view the framed artwork mounted on display boards in the school hall. All were amazed at the talent on show with many remarking the pictures would grace any wall.
Headmaster, Rob Duigan, commented, “The standard of work on show is outstanding, a huge variety of approaches and styles that has given every child a chance to shine. The use of colour is exceptional and effective, it has been a real pleasure to view them all.”
Our thanks to Mrs Holmes for organising the exhibition, and to all involved in the production of the pictures. The artwork was incredible and was a joy to view.
