Year 10 BTEC Art students hold workshop at Catmose Primary
Recently Year 10 BTEC Art and Design students visited Catmose Primary to help pupils in Years 1, 2 and pre-school create artwork based on Michael Rosen’s book: ‘We’re going on a bear hunt’.
Students delivered a separate workshop for each year group where they produced artwork based on two of the environments that the family travelled through for example; they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of the bear.
They used a variety of materials and techniques to produce the artwork ranging from simple colouring for the pre-school pupils to more intricate folding and cutting techniques for Years 1 and 2.
The BTEC students will use this experience as part of their coursework on the theme of ‘Narrative’ which has been set by the exam board.
Both Year 10 students and Catmose Primary pupils thoroughly enjoyed the experience and produced excellent artwork for display in the Primary school.
