Bede’s Prep pupils enjoy art lesson on the beach

February 7, 2018

Year 1 pupils at Bede’s Prep School took advantage of the sunny weather and ventured to the nearby Eastbourne beach for their Art lesson.

Often using the beach as an extension to the classroom for all year groups, the ‘Bede’s at the Beach’ programme provides an opportunity to bring the children’s learning to life in an outdoor environment, applying the skills learned in the classroom to the real world.

Year 1 Form Tutor, Miss Brodie said: “The class has recently been focusing on sketching in their Art lessons, and chose to take their sketch books along with them to draw the landscape. Bodhi Crawford really focused on the perspective of her drawing (pictured), constantly looking at what she was sketching to gain those fine elements of detail to create this outstanding piece of art work.”
