Y5&6 Art on display at the Maritime Museum
Back in June 2106, CFS was invited to take part in a special Art project organised by the Albert Dock Heritage Project. The aim of the project was to work with the pupils from one Liverpool school to produce original artwork about the history of the Liverpool Docks for a large art installation in the Maritime Museum foyer.
As years 5 and 6 were already working on their History of Liverpool topic, this was a really special and unique opportunity for them. They collaborated with the Maritime Museum to create artwork that would be viewed and enjoyed by the thousands of people who pass through the foyer of the museum.
A professional artist, Harriet Hall, was employed to carry out the project with children from our school. Harriet came into CFS for two afternoons during the summer term to work with years 5 and 6. She introduced them to a wide range of exciting techniques including china marking, ink marbling and painting with crystals. The children thoroughly enjoyed the activities and produced some really effective and striking pieces of art.
The installation was completed over the summer and is on view to the public for an extended period of time. It covers a very large stretch of floor-to-ceiling window glass overlooking the Albert Dock. It really is fantastic and most certainly worth visiting. Years 5 and 6 were taken down to the museum at the start of term to see their work in situ, and were delighted with it! There is also a large sign up next to it, explaining the project and acknowledging Christian Fellowship School for producing the work. What great publicity for us!
If you get a chance, do visit the exhibition soon.
Well done years 5 and 6 for your lovely art work.
