End of term exhibition

What a busy morning we had preparing and presenting our end of term exhibition. Last week the CKs created invitations for parents and friends.

There was such a buzz in the air. We started with a movement activity to burn off some energy and then it was into it! First was to name and title paintings created last week. Next locate Artist Trading Card 'mail / postal boxes' and attach them to the sculptural, yarn bombed ladder. 

The group then split into teams, some creating welcome signs, others 'chalk directions' on the pavement and others sticking down the 'stamp' responses for the 3 neighbourhood houses - to sit with the sculpture. 

All were involved in the layout of the exhibition...

... and hang.

A short dramatic performance opened the show, created by the CKs
and then friends and family were shown around by the artists. 

It was a lovely end to the term and I would like to personally thank all those who came to support their little artists. It was very exciting for the CKs and I felt a lot of artistic pride was present in the room. 

A massive thank you to Steph my wonderful volunteer. Although her Duke of Ed hours are complete she has very kindly agreed to stay on into next term. I know there are some CKs who will be very pleased about that!

Happy holidays,
