Elephantastic in the Art Department

Everything has been going elephantastic in the Art Department at King’s St Alban’s recently.

Following both King’s St Alban’s and King’s Hawford’s inclusion in the hugely successful inaugural giraffe art trail two years ago, once again we are taking part. This summer Worcester’s Big Parade is bringing its free art trail of elephant sculptures to the city from 12 July – 5 Sept 2021.

For eight weeks, Worcester will be brought to life with a herd of around 65 elephant sculptures, sponsored by local businesses.

Elephants – both big and small – will form a stunning, free art trail through the city’s streets and open spaces, bringing together the community for one unforgettable event.

The children have been going elephantastic since we received the elephant design templates in February and even more so since our baby elephant arrived earlier this month. The theme the King’s St Alban’s Art Department has chosen this year is ‘The celebration of growth in learning at King’s St Alban’s’. During lockdown, the children did their designs at home, and we have seen a wealth of colourful and beautifully crafted design ideas for their sculptures.

Nicky Cain, KSA Head of Art, has chosen elements from a number of pupils’ ideas to incorporate onto the elephant. Congratulations to all the children who have taken part and submitted such wonderful designs, and to the following whose designs will be part of our final King’s St Alban’s elephant design:- Daniel W, Angus, Noah, Lily-Mae, Katie, Heidi, Emily A, Alex, Eddie u, Sophie P, Willoughby, Eamon, Jack T, Felix, Melissa, Stephanie, Izzy W.

The elephant design is currently being drawn on and the winning pupils will all help to paint and bring our elephant to life! We can’t wait to see how all the designs will be blended together. Watch this space for an ele-update very soon!
