A Feast of Colour and Pattern


During the weekend of May 20th and 21st, High March held its annual Art exhibition. All the pupils’ work was on display from Nursery to Year 6 and it was a feast for the eyes at every turn. We also held an Open Morning on Saturday, May 20th so prospective parents had  an opportunity to appreciate the wide-ranging creativity of High March pupils of all ages. 

At Junior House, there were some fabulous oil pastels and felted wool pictures on display from Year 2 and some rather lovely clay flowers from Year 1. The library was decked out to show the night sky in 1666 when the Great Fire of London raged around!

In Upper School, there was riot of vibrant colours and African patterns, celebrating the work of our featured artist British Nigerian Yinka Shonibare. Wonderful acrylic paintings, clay tiles and bean bags celebrated his love of African wax batik patterns whilst the silk paintings displayed African animals. Year 5 created some amazing, patterned skirts which were jauntily displayed to recreate Yinka Shonibare’s version of ‘The Little Dancer’.

The whole event was enjoyed by prospective parents, current parents and members of the local community: everyone was extremely impressed by the standard of work on display.
