Whilst the eyes of the art establishment may be focused on the Venice BienniaIe, St Joseph’s has plans to produce an equally inspiring showcase of artwork in the form of a one off exclusive gallery exhibition on Friday 16th June where the fruits of St Joseph’s Arts Week will be displayed to any interested parents and supporters.
Embracing the arts in all its forms from painting to dance, pottery to printing, St Joseph’s Arts Week is a celebration of the creative flair and vision of all our pupils with the exhibition held at the end of the week demonstrating the strength and depth of the work done.
Kick-starting the week and inspired by their recent class topic of London, Year 3 pursued an urban art theme by making clay graffiti tags. After researching street artists such as Banksy and Adam Neate, the class worked with a local potter to make their own individualised clay tags for display later in the week at the St Joseph’s Art Exhibition.
Featuring artwork from every year group made in a variety of media and styles, the Friday exhibition is open to all parents and family from 3.20-4.20pm. We do hope you can join us at this event celebrating the creative talents of the children whose flair and enthusiasm for the arts is always astonishing.
