Arts Exhibition 2019

Celebrating Diversity

Our Arts Exhibition celebrated the talents of all children at Oatlands and featured works from our Arts Week, this year Celebrating Difference, where children have been inspired by differently abled artists to create works in painting, drawing, mosaic, photography, sculpture, animation and printing, as well as dance.


Other works include, Celebrating Diversity which is part of our year programme in Art looking at diversity. We have learnt through inspirational artists that dreams and ambitions can be reached whatever the challenges, barriers, prejudices and discriminations there can be in life.  


We were pleased this year to have members of Craft Aid International who unveiled the new sculpture, Working Together for the sculpture garden. Addy, Nick, Doreen, Gillian and their wonderful carers led by Liz have been teaching Year 6 the art of mosaic and together have created a stunning mosaic sculpture.


We were honoured to have joining us the Mayor and Mayoress of the Borough of Harrogate, Councillor Stuart Martin MBE and Mrs April Martin who kindly unveiled the new plaque for us.

Another exciting part to the evening was a dance presentation by some of our Year 6 children who had choreographed a contemporary dance routine, Proud To Be Me, inspired by the Northern School of Contemporary dance workshops Celebrating Diversity in Arts Week.


On the evening we raised money for Craft Aid International and Arts Award for Year 6.  On this evening last year, we were able to raise money for all children in Year 6 who successfully completed their award and received their certificates from Trinity College London/Arts Council England. (we are still counting and will let you know the final amount raised soon).
A special thank you to everyone who supported the evening,  and thank you to the Mayor and Mayoress of the Borough of Harrogate, Councillor Stuart Martin MBE and Mrs April Martin,,   Suzy, Liz, Addy and Doreen from Craft Aid International, our young artists, photographers, guides, presenters, dancers, choreographers, PTA for providing yummy refreshments, parent helpers, all our hardworking staff, in fact our whole school community who supported such a special evening of celebration for all our children at Oatlands. Thank you for all your donations.
