Projects at Tuxford Academy


Super Heroes

- Both imagined and among their community.  These super heroes would be depicted against the background of Tuxford. The aim of the project was also to show year 4 pupils the processes used in producing artwork, and to then produce a collaborative piece in response to those processes.


Diversity and Sustainability

Through the prism of looking at favourite food dishes, we discussed which country  such dishes had derived from and where ingredients were sourced. Each pupil produced a self portrait of themselves eating their favourite dish, which was assembled together to produce three collaborative pieces of artwork.





Strictly Robin Hood


Family project looking at the lives of Robin Hood and his merry men through the painting displayed at Nottingham Castle by Daniel Maclisse.


Take one picture


An example of a booklet designed for teacher INSET sessions relating to Take One Picture, with links between Nottingham City Museums and the National Gallery, London.
