Here at Cypress Lower, we were delighted to see so many parents, carers and children visiting our art exhibition this afternoon. I am sure that you will agree that the range and quality of the artwork was truly impressive.
Little Cypress’s installation celebrated the colours of the rainbow. The children made a rainbow tree, rainbow birds, rainbow collages and junk modelling walls. The installation included a collage depicting the children at play and a fantastic melted wax crayon banner.
Reception’s installation was entitled “Food Glorious Food” and depicted a great British tea party with cup cakes and party plate made from clay and watercolours of the children’s favourite food. Giant 3D papier mache sculptures of summer fruit were suspended from the ceiling to finish off the installation.
Year 1 focused on the continent of Africa. The impressive range of artwork included a fantastic montage of a Masai hut and a trio of giraffes set against the backdrop of the African savannah, a huge, willow African mask, a fabulous mosaic of an African mask, a huge 3d papier mache elephant head, some beautifully colourful African masks, some fabulous drums and some Masai jewellery.
Year 2’s theme was the seaside. The children produced woven willow sculptures of fish and a huge rainbow angel fish suspended from the ceiling. They also worked together to produce fabulous collage underwater seascapes and painted pebbles collected from Broadstairs.
Thank you to all the staff and children who made the week such a success.
