Welcome to Art Class

4th Plinth Competition – Art

The Fourth Plinth Programme is UK’s most talked about contemporary sculpture prize. Funded by the Mayor of London and supported by Arts Council England, it invites world class
artists to create new works for display in Trafalgar Square. Each year, London schools are invited to enter the Fourth Plinth Schools Awards. The awards give children a chance to get involved with public art and offer new views of London.

This year, we have been invited to enter. The children must  design and/or make a model of a sculpture or drawing for the Fourth Plinth. This should express their views on life in London.  If they make a model or sculpture, please get them to bring it in so it can be photographed.

The deadline is midnight of the 9th March, so please can I have all entries in by the 2nd to process the application.

It is a great opportunity for all who enter.

Information can be found at https://www.london.gov.uk/what-we-do/arts-and-culture/current-culture-projects/fourth-plinth-trafalgar-square/fourth-plinth-schools-awards-2018

I look forward to seeing the entries!

Art – Christmas Cards

Online order date: 29th October 2017

Given in to class teacher by date: 3rd November 2017

It’s that time of year again!

As every year, we are printing Christmas cards designed by the pupils of the school. It is a great opportunity for them to create something lovely to be sent out to family and friends over the Christmas period. This year, there is also the option of having their design printed as wrapping paper. In order for the cards to come out as beautiful as thought and designed, we have been sent the following guidelines…

  1. Artworks can be created on white or coloured card or paper and must be A4 in size – DO NOT FOLD THE PAPER IN HALF
  2. Artworks may be portrait or landscape
  3. Bold colours work well, as does collage
  4. AFPS advises against pearlised paint; metallic or light reflective material such as foil and fluorescent highlighters as they do not always reproduce well 
  5. AFPS WILL NOT ACCEPT work with glitter as this may contaminate other artworks and damage machinery in the printing process
  6. Black backgrounds do not produce well
  7. Please DO NOT place artwork in plastic wallets
  8. All pastel artworks must be fixed before sending
  9. Due to copyright laws, AFPS CANNOT reproduce pictures from books or magazines, the internet, school photographs. Collages artworks made from pictures cut from magazines are allowed in most circumstances.

If you have any queries please let me know, and I will do my best to address them.
