Virtual Art Exhibition 2020 (221 images)

Throughout the partial closure and in spite of the challenging circumstances they have found themselves in, the children of Copmanthrope Primary School have continued to produce an amazing array of artwork from our many weekly Art Challenges. The accumulation of this positivity and creativity has been seen in the last two weeks during in our Virtual Arts Fortnight. We are extremely proud to present all the outstanding artwork that the children have produced both in school and at home. Well done to all the children that have submitted work and a huge thanks to all the parents, carers, siblings, grandparents, teachers and TAs who have supported our wonderful students. We are all so proud of them. At Copmanthorpe School, we believe that learning about art and how to be creative are integral to a child's holistic development and mental health; enabling young people to express and understand themselves and the wider world around them. Art also gives children an opportunity to achieve and be proud, to learn new skills and to have fun. This is not our usual community art exhibition but we hope that you enjoy it just as much, from the comfort of your home. Keep a look out, around the village, for any 'Faces' artwork exhibited in pupil's windows. Enjoy!
