Secret Art Auction

Thursday October 24 @ 15:30 - 18:00

 

Secret Art Auction is to fund-raise to support for new classroom books as well as other important arts materials. We are ripping a leaf from the Royal College of Arts book and recreating their famous ‘Secret’ Art Auction. We are asking every child in the school to participate and produce their own postcard sized work of art (being done in class). To celebrate the great Leonardo da Vinci and the 500th anniversary of his death, our theme is ‘Invention’, and so whilst artwork can be in any medium and in any style, it must fit onto the postcard and reflect the theme in some way.
All the postcards, along with entries from local celebrities, artists and children’s authors, will be anonymously auctioned in the school hall on parents evening. Excitingly, the artists names won’t be visible, so bidders won’t be 100% certain whether they’re buying their own child’s work, the work of another pupil, or a valuable one-off original from a local artist or celebrity! You can bid or pay cash on the evening for your own child’s work and the celebrities artwork will be available to bid on until the 8th November. SO COME INTO THE MAIN HALL ON PARENTS EVENINGS TO SEE ALL THE ARTWORK AND MAKE A BID.

Not only children’s art to bid on but also the following artists & celebs have already donated original postcard sized artwork for the exhibition and auction:

Fatboy Slim
Cassette Lord
Pure Evil
Emily Gravett
Gilbert & George
David storey
