As a school we have been using the resources of MK Play Association for many years to create exciting and inventive pieces of art work. The Webber Independent School teaches students across the whole school age range from Reception to A level so everyone has benefited from using MK Play Association’s resources in many different ways.
Reception students have used recycled objects and scrap papers to make sculptures and collages.
Key Stage 3 students have used cardboard, newspapers and scrap pieces of felt and buttons to create sculptures inspired by Piet Mondrian and Joan Miro. Bits of broken calculators and mobile phones were used to decorate a robot hand.
Key Stage 4 students’ creations include newspapers and old apple card containers transformed into a decorated face as well as a scrap brown parcel paper dress that was a GCSE examination final piece.
Key Stage 5 students are encouraged to work on various surfaces and on display is a painting produced on cardboard.
The creative work of Amy D, Salmanali D, Samantha G, Christopher F, Tate K, Kenice C, Rachel T, Hannah M, Riya B and Lucy P is available to view at Gallery 200, 200 Silbury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 1LT from now until 18th April 2017, open 9am to 3pm.
