Worcester Porcelain visit inspires Art Project

Year 3 have enjoyed a visit to the Royal Worcester Porcelain Works Museum as part of the flower themed art project they are currently exploring. The work the pupils produce this term will form part of the gallery exhibition at this year’s Creative ConneXions. Creative ConneXions is an annual event for Years 3 to 6, which aims to provide children with a creative learning journey through the arts, culminating in a theatre performance and a gallery exhibition. It is a major event in the school’s creative calendar and forms a right of passage for all King’s St Alban’s pupils. This year’s Creative ConneXions performance will take place on 25th and 26th of March in the John Moore Theatre and will be the first that our Year 3 children will be directly involved with.

Pupils used the visit to the Royal Porcelain Works Museum to research artefacts following an inspiring talk they received last week. A former Royal Porcelain Worcester factory employee gave a detailed demonstration on how porcelain flowers are made. Pupils and staff used the trip to explore the museum and the displays. The Museum houses the largest collection of Worcester porcelain in the world, the Museum displays pay homage to the magnificent history and heritage of Worcester Porcelain.

King’s St Alban’s Art teacher, Mrs Cain, said: “the children thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to take their learning outside of the school art studio. It is always beneficial to explore different artistic techniques. Hearing directly from a former Royal Porcelain factory worker really helped to reinforce the learning lesson for our pupils. The pupils were super ambassadors for the school and I am excited to see the work they produce as part of their flower themed art project on display at this year’s Creative ConneXions”.

Well done Year 3 on an excellent morning, we look forward to seeing your flower creations come to life!
