Textile Naratives at Drumcroon

Year 4 had a wonderful afternoon at Drumcroon Art Gallery in Wigan looking at the work of artists Val Jackson and Jane McKeating.

These artists use different fabrics and threads to compose their work. We drew some sketches to inspire us and have used these to develop our own Art  at St. Andrew’s.

A big thanks to Mrs Ely, Mrs Schofield and Mrs Crooks who joined Year 4 on their creative learning experience.

In Art we have been looking at different viewpoints and have been inspired by the work of the artist David Hockney. Here is a slideshow of our Hockney inspired photographs.

Also, why not play the ‘Guess Who?’ game and post  on a comment of who you think the children in the photographs below are?

Good Luck and have fun!
