Colour, commitment and co-operation.
All pupils at the Sacred Heart School contributed to a Shaping Colour and Interesting Faces Exhibition in the Barn Theatre. Pottery heads produced by Years R – 11 and staff were displayed, and each had a distinctly different character. Pupils from Year 5 – 11 were given a holiday challenge to copy a 5 inch square of a picture. They had no idea that the result would be a replica of Picasso’s ‘Weeping Woman’. The painting is most impressive, a masterpiece of colour and accuracy and shows what can be achieved when talents are pooled. It proves that everyone is a proficient painter. A visiting art critic pronounced it an amazing likeness to the original.
Years 1 – 4 were also set a holiday task and their art work has been compiled to make a stained glass window which is very vibrant.
Work at the Exhibition included work from Year R – 10 inspired by the Mary Webb Exhibition at the Sainsbury Centre. A variety of colourful squares with well balanced shapes were on view, and we were delighted when Mary Webb made a surprise visit and was very impressed by the standard and variety of the art including a cube decorated with colour shapes by Year R – 2.
We were also visited by volunteers from the Samaritans, who will be the recipients of money raised at this event. Last term they trained nine pupils to be Listeners for their peers so the £230 raised will be a thank you for their efforts.
