Oriel Cadog: pop-up gallery in Llangadog
Ysgol Gynradd Llangodog curated a pop-up gallery yesterday evening. The school has been studying art intensely lately – a trip was made to the The New Art Gallery Walsall, near Birmingham, and local artist Julie Ann Sheridan of The Last Gallery was involved.
It was wonderful to see the results – classrooms were full of paintings, sculptures, video installations and music, and the children made sure the reception was welcoming. Great to see the school spending time and energy studying art. Talking to teachers, it seemed that everyone had got a lot out of the project – not only learning and creating art, but also taking time to look and think about things – being involved in observation and discussion. And that surely is what art is about!
