    For Sculpture at Kingham Lodge 2021, Kingham Primary School made ‘Blowing in the wind’, a installation of beautiful hanging lanterns made of wicker and paper.  These colourful, delicate lanterns hung in the protection of the pavilion courtyard and gently moved in the wind.

  • Workshops

    Artist Emma Cox is visiting the school weekly to provide art experiences to each year group on a half termly basis, in this way building up knowledge and experience of art that fit with the schools timetable.

  • Whole School Workshop

    In February 2022 artists Emma Cox and Abigail Boisot worked with the whole school to deliver a charcoal drawing workshop.  Inspired by birds the children could come up with their own design (‘there are no mistakes’) and they were pinned to a tree in a whole school display for all to see.

    Children and staff have been very positive about the workshops and parents have told us their children have been inspired to continue doing art at home.  Out of the mouths of babes: “I can’t wait to get home and start drawing”. “I wish we could do this everyday” “This doesn’t feel like school as it’s so much fun”. “I loved using the charcoal without reproachful adults worrying about our cleaness (sic)”.

     

    In July 2022 artists Emma Cox and Abigail Boisot delivered a watercolour workshop to the the whole school, to rave reviews.
