How does art link to a happy and healthy lifestlye?

This week in IPC we communicated our ideas as we commented on many different works of art. The children enjoyed experiencing the art of Tom Otterness (Sculpture and Interactive Art), Mondrian and Miro (Painting) and Yayoi Kusama (interactive art installations).

They acquired new knowledge using the terminology of style, design, colour and technique as well as building art skills, such as working with clay, ink, paint and being a part of an ongoing art installation - the obliteration wall!

So... how does art link to happiness? Well my favourite quote of the week was - "Because when we take art home that we've made to our Mums and Dads, they are always so happy!"

Come up to the school to see the in progress clay works, our own Miro and our interactive obliteration wall and share the happiness!
