Over the autumn term children from Sidbury Primary School explored the world of art. The pupils studied many different techniques and learnt about the artists who made these techniques famous. The artists the children were inspired by were David Hockney, Damien Hirst, Monet, Barbra Hepworth, Jeannie Baker and Matisse. All of the children had the chance to recreate their own piece of art in the style of these famous artists.

Towards the end of the autumn term the children turned their classroom into an art gallery, with a ticket booth and even a gift shop. The pupils invited many VIP guests to the gallery including Miss Hill (the headteacher).

Unfortunately, due to the COVID restrictions the children could not invite their families into school to see all their hard work, so they made their very own video which showcased the gallery and all the children's artistic work.
