To complete part B of their Arts Award Explore, the children have explored the work of an artist and an arts organisation.
Warwick Arts Centre
Warwick Arts Centre was a delight! From outside it looked plain. Whereas on the inside in looked grand. When we got there we went into a very bright room to ask all our questions. Next we went into the theatre. There were lots of chairs. After that we went behind the stage. It felt extraordinary. We learnt interesting facts. We asked questions for example How much money is invested in Warwick Arts Centre? Our answer was £50000. We also asked how many costumes they had and they said NONE!
