In times like these where we are all at home for many hours of each day, it's important to remember to have some fun with our learning!

The Getty Museum in Los Angeles, California has started a challenge for people all around the world to recreate famous works of art using objects found around their own homes. We thought this was a fantastic idea and wanted to make a Fairlight edition of this challenge! I am inviting all year groups and all parents and carers to take part. Each week I will choose an artist of the week, some information about who they are/were and post a few of their famous works of art. It is then your task to try to recreate one of these works using whatever objects you have lying around the house. Be as creative and as imaginative as you want! Once you have created your own version of the artist's piece of art, please click on this padlet link (or scroll down) and upload your photo on the padlet area so we can all share the brilliant recreations. (Don't forget to add your name when you post your work!)

If you want to take a look at the Getty Museum challenge as well, you can follow them on Twitter @GettyMuseum or you can click the link below to find out more:


I will post a new artist and challenge at the start of each week. Now...let's have some fun!

Thank you to everyone that has taken part and shared their wonderful recreations with us! I have loved seeing your imagination and talent on display. A big shout-out goes to Miss White for being so brilliantly entertaining and devoted to recreating some masterpieces! Over the summer, if there are any artists or particular works of art that you want to recreate, please share them here (and include a picture of the original if you can!) as we would love to see your creativity continue!

Have a great summer everyone, stay safe, have fun and see you in September!

Children talking and using full sentences is really important to us at Fairlight. Why not use this time to develop your children's language and play skills at the dinner table?
