The Dassett Creation Art Exhibition

Spectacular! The Dassett Arts Exhibition for the 2013/14 Academic Year was so colourful and vibrant that it literally took your breath away as you stepped into the gallery. Flocks of multi-coloured birds flew overhead, and creatures of the deep swam in a magnificent ocean. Beautiful Butterflies hovered above patterned snakes and turtles and fabric natural collages and tray gardens brought the outside in. The tree of life stood regally in the centre and the life size Ibis sat sedately on her nest of speckled eggs. Baskets of papier maché fruit and vegetables looked tempting enough to eat, weird and wonderful dream worlds were explored by the visiting public and amazing i-pad animations entertained. The skills involved in the art work included painting on paper and fabric, cutting, sticking, folding, clay modelling, papier maché, sketching, observation and ICT. There was even some science involved with kaleidoscopes. Our 3 days of ‘Creation’ certainly were extremely “Good”.  
It was a delightful way of displaying the creations from our highly entertaining and enjoyable ‘Creation’ arts week. Once again, a huge thank you to all of the teachers, teaching assistants, visiting professionals and voluntary helpers who all contributed to an amazing few days at The Dassett and helped to transform the hall. Your hard work and dedication is much appreciated  – so many of the children have expressed so much pleasure and been so enthused at being given the opportunity to let their creativity shine.
We were delighted to see so many of you throughout both the Friday evening and Saturday morning, we know that the children were all absolutely thrilled to have their best efforts put on display for you all to see. It is so important that both they, and their superb work, can be given maximum exposure at this age, see how important it is to take pride in their abilities, hone their presentation skills and have a platform to really express themselves through their work.
Our massive thanks go to The Friends for making refreshments available as, whether people were enjoying a glass of wine on the Friday evening or a nice cup of tea on Saturday morning, the atmosphere was very much enhanced and people felt they could linger and fully experience the art on offer.
We have put a few photos from the exhibition below but there are 50+ selected images available in the Exhibition review in Art in the Curriculum section of the website. Our apologies if you can’t find your work on there, but we featured as much as possible.
Thank you to all those involved for putting on such a professional and well received event, including the staff and volunteers  involved in setting up the hall on the Friday – a gargantuan task! It is hugely appreciated.
Some of the many comments from our visitors:
We loved it!!

An excellent exhibition! All the artists are to be congratulated. A great night out!
Fabulous art work – and so fantastic that the school has given the staff and children the time and resources to show off their creativity.

A really wonderful display of art – looks like all the children worked really hard and had fun.

What talented children!

The quality of the artwork was amazing.
It is very impressive. We can’t wait to come and see the next one!
