Arts Week 2023

Arts week this year has been based around black history month and celebrating difference.

Our artist this week was Alma Thomas who is an African American artist who uses a pointillism technique with paint and collage. We used her ideas to create our own pictures.

We also sewed hand puppets based on someone we know and learned about lots of different musical instruments by watching YolanDa Brown and her band jammers.
