African and Asian Design Workshop

On 8th January, Year 2 experienced a super time at The Barber Institute, Birmingham as part of their Art and Design with Geographical links study. They were encouraged to… improve looking, listening and speaking skills through questioning and discussion, explore the fascinating history and purpose of objects and paintings in the collection, particularly focusing upon the West African ‘Altar to the Hand’ and rhino bronze sculptures. They worked to develop skills in enquiry, develop ideas and be creative, experimenting with new materials and techniques.
