Virtual Art Gallery

Welcome to the new AVA virtual gallery; a great way to display how you are being creative whilst at home. Exhibiting Art demonstrates how you are developing skills, knowledge, understanding and an appreciation of art, whilst also building a sense of pride and ownership in your school…plus a little bit of competition!

Creating Art is a wonderful activity for the whole family to enjoy, to follow up after a walk or a virtual tour of a museum online. Art is able to consolidate great memories and enjoyment and can also be relaxing and therapeutic too.

There will be a weekly activity for the whole family to enjoy as well as the Art lessons on Teams and in the Home Learning sections on our website; so with that in mind, we hope is that students and parents will get creative and share their Art for the whole of our community to enjoy. You may even receive a reward for your efforts!

For a chance to exhibit your wonderful creations on our gallery, take a photograph of your completed work and email it with your name and year group to:

virtualart@arkvictoria.org

If you're looking for ways to get involved in something creative but have limited materials at home, take a look at these apps that can be downloaded to your devices.

Sketches (iOS app) is elegant and a good tool for older kids. It has no stamps or distractions, so it helps them concentrate on drawing. They can import photos into it, and also watercolour a drawing. There is a free and a Pro version, and the free version generously allows users to try most features.

Scribblify (iOS and Android app) has a huge range of brushes, backgrounds and colours that encourage kids to play with colour, lines and symmetry. The Scribblify website explains the app well, but kids can pretty much start drawing with it instantly. The bright colours and patterns will appeal to youngsters. It's free but you can pay for more tools in a Premium version.
