As the country begins to open up after months of lockdown, Dudley House School embarked on a collaborative school venture on 25 May – the staging of their own art gallery experience. For one day only, the school entrance, the large hall and one of the classrooms were completely transformed and dressed with collage, printing, weaving, painting and sculpture that the children had created during an art themed day earlier in the term and art lessons.
The school has always prided itself on valuing the arts and sports as much as the core subjects: English, Maths and Science.
Visitors were able to book timed slots and adhered to measures taken to ensure Covid safety. Parents were shown around by their own children who were able to explain their processes and learning experiences. The staff created interactive activity stations including marbling, transient art, sand art, salt dough modelling and a quiz for the children and visitors to enjoy.
The school has received an abundance of positive feedback and the event was videoed and photographed for those unable to attend. These can be viewed on the school website www.dudleyhouseschool.co.uk or Facebook page www.facebook.com/dudleyhouseschool
