Welcome to St Gregory's Art Page
“Art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time.”
On this page you will find out all about our Art and Design curriculum. There are links to each class page where you can see what your child's class are studying in Art and also what super work they have produced so far. Enjoy!
We were recently invited by The Bombed Out Church to take part in their Remembrance Poppy Project, which involved us making lots of poppies from recycled pop bottles. The poppies were then installed in the memorial garden of the church in time for Remembrance Sunday.
Artist Afternoon (23.10.20) - Pablo Picasso
Last week the children took part in our first Artist afternoon of the year. They learned all about the artist Pablo Picasso, his style of art and love of stripy and colourful trousers!
October Half Term Art Challenge - Leaf Man/Leaf Art
With so many leaves about at this time of year, it seemed only right to include them in our challenge. The children were set the task of creating their own version of Leaf Man or any other characters from the book by Lois Ehlert. Or they could create their own leaf inspired artwork.
St Gregory's 'Art at Home Gallery'
Whilst we are all stuck at home, we thought it would be a nice idea to set some art activities for us to do together. Once the children have completed their work, they can send us a photo (via class dojo) for us to upload and share on the site.
Work inspired by Andy Goldsworthy
Children from Year 6 created their own piece of environmental sculpture based on the work of Andy Goldsworthy
Cubist Face Sculptures
The children took part in an online art lesson focusing on how to make a cubist face sculpture, they then posted their creations for us to share.

The Allerton Oak
Last week we entered a competition to illustrate or write a poem about the 'Allerton Oak' (which,for those of you who don't know, is the old oak tree in Calderstones Park.) which as been voted Britain's best tree! The response from the children was fantastic with entrants from our 2 year old provision, right up to Year 6! The Friends of Calderstones Park were amazed at how many entries we sent in and have asked me to say a huge "WELL DONE!" to all involved. I'm just putting the final touches to our display and so will upload photos soon.
