Brumby Juniors do it again!

Brumby Juniors appear to be one of the most art active schools in North Lincolnshire! They've been running the creative curriculum for two years now, with tremendous success. Our Education Officer, Hayley, went along to Brumby's creative showcase to see the performances she helped develop, and the beautiful artworks the children had produced in her absence.

Mrs Pitois bravely ran a shadow puppet workshop throughout the summer term. The children started by visiting 20-21 Visual Arts Centre and watching the popular Sharmanka exhibition before taking part in a "starting point" shadow puppet workshop, introcuding the idea of shadow play and performance.

Below are some photos of the very successful shadow plays, performed by the children at the showcase event:

A HUGE congratulations to all the shadow performers, who were a little worried the last time we met them. What a great success all the hard work turned out to be!

Remember a few weeks ago when we hosted a workshop at Brumby Juniors to support their Everyday Objects workshop? Well, their showcase was great! Children were showing parents how to make the Flyer Flowers that we all made, together.

The children were taking the flyers apart to use them as separate sheets. They looked so much clearer and brighter than the ones we had previously made. Lots of critical analysis and reconstruction of ideas proves a big success!


The whole school was animated with art, creativity and intrigue. Each classroom became a hive of activity with children showing parents how to batik, tie dye, do aboriginal art, and showed them all about pop art and Andy Warhol! Below is just a small selection of photos taken on the day of the showcase!


Once again, a massive congratulations to all the pupils and teachers who have worked very hard over the summer term to make some truly stunning artworks and performances. It is a delight to have worked with you all and encouraged the creativity out of each of the pupils in our workshops. What lucky children the Brumby pupils are, to have halls adorned with such bright and interesting art!

We can't wait for next year's showcase!!
