Where individuals flourish

Art Gallery

Welcome to the Loxley Art Gallery

 

At Loxley Primary, we love being creative!

Here you can view some examples of our finished art work...

Views of Mount Vesuvius

As part of their 'Extreme Earth' topic, Sycamore Class learned about the geography of volcanoes. In art, the children studied the 'Thirty Six Views of Mount Vesuvius' by Japanese artist Hokusai before designing and making volcano-inspired printing blocks.  They then experimented with printing using different coloured ink combinations on different types of paper.  Here are some of the finished results...

Butterfly Lion Portraits

For their first D.E.A.L. ('Drop Everything and Listen') text, Horse Chestnut Class read Michael Morpurgo's 'The Butterfly Lion.' To celebrate the culmination of the story, the Year 2/3 children produced these beautiful mixed media portraits...

Dragon Eye Sculptures

Following the children's interest in dragons from this year's World Book Day, pupils in both Horse Chestnut and Sycamore Classes used their imagination to create these fantastic clay dragon eye sculptures.  As part of the project, the children developed a wide range of skills for working with clay, including: rolling, pulling, pinching and shaping; carving and adding texture and pattern using a range of 'tools'; how to use a range of joining techniques.

Santa Claus Portraits

In Acorn Class, we explored the description of St. Nicholas in the classic verse, 'Twas The Night Before Christmas', by Clement Clarke Moore.  Our lovely Reception children then created their own characterful Father Christmas portraits using paint, oil pastels and a range of sparkly embellishments...

Mission S P A C E

Linked to their earth and space topic in science, Sycamore Class have been studying the rocket-themed works of artist Peter Thorpe. 

 

After developing their skills in establishing a light source in their drawings, the children went on to produce their own rocket spacescapes using soft pastels...

Ephemeral Art

Horse Chestnut Class have been studying the work of environmental artist, Andy Goldsworthy.  Using his most famous creations as inspiration, the children enjoyed designing and making their own ephemeral art works from a range of natural materials found down on the field...

Panda Portraits

These characterful bears were created by Years 2 and 3 in response to our two week, whole school 'All About Bears' project at the start of the autumn term...

Coventry Blitz Multimedia

To showcase their cross-curricular learning from the topic 'Windows Into WWII', Horse Chestnut and Sycamore Classes created these amazing, multi-media Blitz skylines to depict the WWII bombing of the city of Coventry in November, 1940.  Can you spot both the cathedral and some of the many factories amidst the houses in this local, wartime skyline?

Working with an artist: The Big Mosaic Project

In September 2019, all children and staff in school had the pleasure of working with artist David Bowers to design and make a mosaic to embody our school vision of human flourishing, inspired by the Bible story: Christ the Sower...

A Shield fit for a King or Queen

Following a class trip to Warwick Castle, the children in Acorn Class learned about the meaning of the many different symbols used in a family's coat of arms.  They then designed their own coat of arms to reflect their core strengths and personalities...

Community Art Project

The children in Key Stage Two took part in a competition to design new ceiling tiles to brighten up the Children's Accident and Emergency department at Warwick Hospital.  Here are the five winning designs, which have now been installed into this refurbished hospital department to bring some much-needed distraction and joy to young patients...

Seascapes

Following the study of J M W Turner's famous tempestuous seascapes, Acorn Class created these multimedia seascape pictures using watercolour paints, torn up paper and digital art created using the software 2Create.  What FANTASTIC artists we have in Class One! To see more of their super seascapes, take a look at the display in the corridor outside their classroom...

Harvest Still Life Compositions

Inspired by the still life compositions of Paul Cezanne, the children in Sycamore Class learned:

  • techniques for measuring their drawing to create good proportions;
  • how to layer objects in their drawing;
  • how to add tone and texture to their work using oil pastels.

Their finished pictures were used as part of the Harvest decorations in St Nicholas Church. Well done, Sycamore Class - they look great!
