P3 visit the Talbot Rice Gallery


Primary 3 thoroughly enjoyed their trip to the Talbot Rice Gallery at the University of Edinburgh last Monday.  The pupils loved seeing the sculptures of Wojtek the bear and hearing all about how he helped the Polish soldiers in World War 2.  The magic piano was definitely a highlight, and the pupils also loved seeing how the beautiful stained glass window installations changed the light, colour and mood of each room in the gallery.  We ended our visit by making our own stained glass windows using an alphabet code to make them all individual to our own names.

Primary 4 were invited to participate in an art workshop with the artist, Jan Bee Brown, at St. Margaret’s House. Jan told the class the story of the people who lived on St. Kilda. This was the inspiration for the exhibition. The class were able to make 3D paper houses which then became part of the exhibition. There was also the opportunity to create ‘envelope art’ and to draw a scene that depicts home. Primary 4 really enjoyed the session and were also invited along with their families to the opening of the exhibition on Sunday 4th January at 2pm.
