Over the last half term, all children have had the unique opportunity to create their own response to the work of artist David Nash. For the last fifty years, David Nash has dedicated his art practice to the study of trees and wood, creating both sculptural work and beautiful gestural drawings.
From visits to the park, to working on both individual pieces and large-scale group projects, children have had the opportunity to experiment with drawing using willow charcoal, pencil, and paint. Free from the expectation of a right and a wrong way to draw, children have been unrestricted in expressing themselves, allowing each child to develop their own unique mark-making style. All the work made was brought together for an exhibition in the Sports Hall, as part of the Summer Fete and end of year activities, giving children an opportunity to share their work with friends and family.
