Beanstalks, brushes, Thor and more… Winning art!

Last week, our whole school theme was ‘Tales from the Treehouse’ inspired by our very talented friends from the Treehouse Theatre Company. We were inspired by the amazing audio books the theatre company had been releasing on their web page and decided that we couldn’t miss the opportunity to get involved.

Children from across the school were challenged by Treehouse Theatre and their teachers to listen to one audio story and to then create a piece of art work that reflected either the moral of the story or one section of the adventure. Families were given the freedom to be as imaginative and creative as possible and could choose from making giant ‘art attack’ style creations, painting or sketching a scene, or using junk modelling to create a mini puppet theatre and scene set up.

The response from our St. James’ children has been overwhelming and we were so impressed with all of the entries from across the school. Everyone submitted really high quality artwork and so it was very difficult for teachers to choose just 2 winning pieces of artwork from each class.

Despite how difficult this was, they had to choose and so here are the winning pieces of artwork that will be sent to Treehouse Theatre to be displayed on their website. We are so lucky to have such a talented, imaginative bunch of children at St. James’. Enjoy perusing the winning art gallery..!
