Year 1 explore Under the Sea at the Barber Institute

Last week, Year 1 visited the Barber Institute of Fine Arts at the University of Birmingham.  They were able to have a tour of the art galleries, looking at all of the artwork linking with their topic of Under the Sea.  They looked at portraits, landscapes, and story paintings.  The children dressed up as characters and told a story about the sea dancing.  With help from the teachers and staff at the Institute, pupils were able to create some amazing artwork, making their own prints using polystyrene blocks and printers’ ink on paper.
