Art Week

This week our school have been completing one of our annual art weeks across the school.  This year we have focused on the impressive collections of art created by famous black artists.  Year 6 chose to complete work inspired by the American artist Corey Barksdale.  Corey decided at the age of 10 that he wanted to be an artist.  Inspired by colours on quilts made by his granny as well as visiting Africa, Corey’s artwork is big, bright and bold.  His use of black outline is just as important as his vibrant colours.  Corey paints real people and enjoys creating street murals, so his artwork is accessible to everyone.  Here you can see us imitating the work of Corey experimenting with different mediums.
