In our continued efforts to improve our learning spaces, we spent the day renovating the art room. We get so much feedback about the Art Room, and how lucky the children are to have this dedicated space that they can move to in order to express themselves and have a ‘change of scenery’. We really wanted the space to encourage collaborative creative time where ideas about colour, shape and form can be discussed between peers and resources can be shared fairly and respectfully.
We have repaired and painted the walls, added some better lighting, kitted out the cupboards with new resources and displayed large artwork posters to inspire the children in their work/play (interchangeable!).
What Next: Buy countertop easels to enable children to have quiet, solitary art experiences when they need it.
