The Lightbox Art Installation.
During the Summer Term 2021, some Year 5 children had the opportunity to take part in an art project with The Lightbox art gallery in Woking. The children had to design and make a collaborative piece of art based on Eduardo Paolozzi's Hands of the Sculptor. The children in Year 5 discussed how our hands could represent hard work throughout a person’s life, as they change with the person and the activities in which they encounter in their lives. We decided to incorporate this thought into making our own clay hands, with detailed patterns on the palms. The hands were attached to a tree-like structure, representing the growth of people within their own lives.
The artwork was put on display at The Lightbox art gallery during July and August and viewed by many people visiting the gallery. Well done, Year 5!
