Talent in the Arts

The ‘Talent in the Arts’ project is focused on enhancing classroom practice to create a challenging experience for the benefit for all pupils.

1st May 2010 - 31st July 2010

During the Summer Term, Year 3 and 4 class teachers from Morley and Seacroft Manston schools will work alongside visual artist, Steve Pool, on Talent in the Arts: Visual Art.

The school’s teachers will be supported by the artist to identify children who are demonstrating talent within visual art.   The programme challenges perceptions about what “talent” looks like and which children are considered to be talented.

The identified children from across the schools will spend a day at Leeds Art Gallery working with Steve Pool, the resulting work will support Open Show which is taking place there over the summer.

The information generated from the Talent in the Arts programmes will form the basis of a resource for all Leeds schools, to be disseminated from September 2010.   It will also support a year long focus on raising the profile of “talent” in the arts in the Leeds localities.
