Leeds Art Gallery

Wednesday 17 November 2021

Today, we travelled into Leeds city centre to pay a visit to the art gallery. This visit enriched the children’s current art learning experiences.

Throughout the afternoon, the classes took part in two workshops. They studied pieces of abstract art by looking closely at the shapes, lines, colours, spaces and patterns. Then, the children were asked to recreate the shapes using their bodies.

I loved seeing all the different pictures.

I wonder how the artists got their ideas?

I never used to enjoy art because I can’t draw. Now, I am loving it!

Ask your child about this trip. Can they remember the meaning of abstract art?
