Hirst Class started working on an exciting project today. They went on a trip to the Whitechapel Art Gallery and worked with the architects, Matt+Fiona.
The project is being run over the whole Autumn term, and during that time year 6 will be working closely with Matt+Fiona to design a new room for art at Lansbury Lawrence. For the next term, Hirst Class are architects!
Today we explored what a space could be used for, and discussed what art and design are. The differences between making something for a purpose and making something to express a feeling.
The final designs that the children make will be exhibited at the Whitechapel Art Gallery in December. Not only will Hirst Class be architects, but they will also be exhibiting their work at a gallery which has hundreds of visitors daily. Please do keep following the blog to see their progress.
