Emmaville Primary School

Arts Enrichment Week

15th June 2018

Beginning with performances from the wonderful Lempen Puppet Theatre, Arts Week was all about the animals, themed around the music of The carnival of the Animals, by Charles-Camille Saint-Saëns.  Each year group focused on one of the animals featured in the music and the children were challenged to use a range of artistic techniques and skills, including collage, painting, sculpture, printing and puppetry to produce their artwork.   Inspiration was drawn from artists around the world, but we also studied the sculptor Antony Gormley who has often created vast art installations that reflect the diversity of people on our planet; some of us created self-sculptures based on his 'Field' exhibition of thousands of terracotta figures, which celebrated the fact that, although we are all pupils at Emmaville Primary School, we each bring our differences which are to be celebrated.
