Art Club and Art Award
Each week at Stannington we hold an art club for a small number of Year 2 children who have shown they are ‘gifted’ in Art and have a passion for all things creative.
Mrs Turner runs the club (she is VERY passionate about art!), which usually lasts an hour. The club has covered many themes and artists over the past few years, from Pete McKee and Andy Warhol to Aboriginal Art. Some of the children’s completed work can be seen on display in and around school.
The children commit to taking part for a minimum of 20 weeks as this will lead to them gaining the Discover Arts Award from the Arts Council England. Amazing! Have a look at the following link to find out more about the award.
