Dance, Drama and More at Arts Week 2013
Dance, circus skills, music, drama and art were all part of Bede's Prep School's Arts Week.
Events included contemporary dance workshops, by ex-Stomp dancer, Pete Francis, a performance by the University of Brighton Dance Group and ateliers by two artists in residence: local print-maker, engraver and painter, Teri Walsh, exhibited her work in the school library and spoke to the children about her art and Beth Tarbutt demonstrated mosaic-making in art lessons. There was also a lecture on Picasso's painting Guernica by the art expert, Professor Antony Slinn. Well known local organist, Paul Collins, gave an organ recital in the chapel.
Year 5 performed 'The Wind in the Willows' and on May Day there was a festival of ribbon dancing and flower-making in the playground.
Circus and performance skills were then celebrated in performances by pupils and staff in assembly.
Altogether, this was a celebration of the Arts and a chance for the pupils to experience and enjoy them.
