Yinka Shonibare Art

You may remember that Chestnut Class were in contact with British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare, whose art gallery sent the children some beautiful African fabrics from his own collection. 

The children have created some beautiful fabric/wire sculptures. They have also used the fabrics for some 'Fusion' art linked in to their current Romans topic, which is currently displayed in Chestnut Class. You can also view this art work in the Gallery section of the website.

Photographs of the children's work was emailed to Yinka's art gallery and the children were thrilled to hear that the gallery sent a very complimentary reply.
