Classes

Classes

We have chosen to name our classes after innovative artists who have pioneered new ways of working in the arts.

 

Da Vinci Class

Reception/Year 1 (previously Class 1)

Leonardo da Vinci was a true genius, who is among the most influential artists in history, having left a significant legacy not only in the realm of art, but also in science: a polymath, whose broad-ranging knowledge facilitated inquiry and problem-solving.  We have chosen da Vinci for our youngest children as we wish to celebrate their natural creativity and inquisitive thought - a disposition we wish to nurture and develop during their time here at Blewbury School.

Goldsworthy Class

Year1/Year2  (previously Class 3)

 

Andy Goldsworthy is an artist, sculptor and photographer who produces artwork using natural materials such as: flowers, mud, ice, leaves, twigs, pebbles, boulders, snow, thorns, bark, grass and pine cones.  As a school we are passionate about outdoor learning  and ensuring the children understand about the world around them; including cherishing the beautiful environment of the local area.  

Picasso Class

Year 3/Year 4  (previously Class 4)

 

Pablo Picasso is one of the most famous artists of the twentieth-century.  Even as a child he was better at drawing than many adults. He could draw and paint just about anything, and in any style. He liked to experiment and try out new ideas, which is important if you are an artist, because the world is always changing. Picasso helped us see the world in new ways, something we want the children at Blewbury School to do!

Klimt Class

Year 4/Year 5 (Previously Class 5)

 

Gustav Klimt was a talented artist from a young age.  To develop his skills he painted everyday.  We want the children at Blewbury School to recognise that you have to put effort in if you want to achieve great things!  Klimt is a good role model for this and he also worked well in partnership with his brother and friends.

Banksy Class

Year 5/Year 6 (Previously Class 6)

 

Banksy is a British street and graffiti artist. S/he likes to remain anonymous and not let people know his/her true identity. S/he often draws in high visibility public places such as on buildings or train stations. His/her paintings are often about important topics which get people to think about what is happening in the world.  We want the children of Blewbury School to develop compassion for the world in which they live and a questioning mind.
