At Gorsemoor we really enjoy art, and display children’s artwork to help brighten up our school environment.

Every class has  art lessons as part of our Cornerstones curriculum.

In the past we have enjoyed art days, where we focus on a topic and art skill to produce some exciting and unusual pieces of art; and during the year, we usually hold Family Art competitions where families work together to produce a themed piece of artwork – with prizes to be won!

We also run after-school art clubs for particular year groups of children. These have been very successful, with everyone enjoying getting ‘messy’ while using their creative talents to produce some super works of art – see the art club page!

Visiting Artists - Memories

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the  school being opened (2008),  we had a very special artist visit.

While he was here, he created a mural to commemorate the occasion. It is now displayed in school. (See below).

 Later Phil worked on a project with Year 6 pupils and members of the community for display at the front of school. Unfortunately a lorry reversed into the wall in 2015, damaging the artwork beyond repair!

If you would like to find out any more about our visiting artist, then you can visit his personal website:
