Art Club

Happiness lies more in giving than receiving.

At Art Club this half term we have been inspired by visiting St Mary's Church and looking at the artwork all around us - the carved woodwork, the sculpted stonework, the stitched kneelers and the painted glass. Each week we focused on a different material and created individual masterpieces. We focused on a verse from the bible - Happiness lies more in giving than receiving (Acts 20:35), giving our creations to others as a gift. For Mother's Day the children designed and sewed their own bunting for their mum or a friend or family member. The children collaborated on some 'big art' which they wanted to be in the shape of the cross. This will be on display in the Church over Easter for all to see.
