Using the parklands, venues and waterways as an inspiring learning environment, teachers and pupils can visit the Park and enjoy the experience in our amazing outdoor classroom.
The Go! Outside learning resources challenge pupils to answer the question “What is it like to see the Park through an artist’s eyes?” Pupils will study the landscapes, the people, or the shapes and sounds of Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park in order to create a piece of artwork or creative writing that captures their experience.
Whether your activities take place in the classroom (bronze), in the local community (silver) or on the Park (gold), our Park through a Painter’s Eyes booklet, Sculpture in the Park and Artistic Study in the Park map resources are sure to bring them to life!
Bronze Activities – pupils create different ‘interpretations’ of the Park inspired by different artists, with pupils producing paragraphs on each of their pieces of work to describe how that artist sees the world, using descriptive and emotive language.
Silver Activities – inspired by the Park, pupils will plan and design a new sculpture to enhance a local community space.
Gold Activities – pupils create their own work of Park-inspired art – through a visit to Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, pupils complete an artistic study of either the landscapes, the people, or the shapes and sounds of the Park.
We will shortly be running a competition linked to the Go! Create resources – keep your eyes peeled for more information on what it is and how to enter and be in with the chance of winning some amazing prizes!
