My favourite type of art is sculpting and finding unusual materials and making pieces of art out of them. I love visiting art galleries and learning about local and international artists that we can learn different techniques from but most importantly I love hearing your ideas about how we can inspire our own artworks as creativity is what arts all about!

All about me

Hello there! My name is Miss Baldwin and I am head of Art at Two Mile Ash. Art is my favourite subject to teach as it is creative, fun and even a bit messy at times! I love art because it gives us all an opportunity to go on a creative journey together and make masterpieces in lots of different ways that might be drawing, painting, sculpting, print making and even taking photographs.

Art at TMA

Art is a theme that runs through are whole curriculum at TMA as we link it to so many topics! From rainforest art in the style of Henri Rousseau to art inspired by the locality and Marvellous Milton Keynes we use a variety of different sources to inspire ourselves as artists. We work hard to help the children develop ideas, master techniques and take inspiration from the greats as well as extending their creative experience through inspiration days, collaborative whole school projects such as Take One Picture and linking art to mindfulness.

Links to local community

At Two Mile Ash we really value the artistic links to our community in Milton Keynes. The children learn about local artists including Liz Lehy who sculpted the concrete  cows as well as ‘The Leaping Man’ a sculpture on one of Milton Keynes many roundabouts that was sculpted to honour Greg Rutherford who was a student at Two Mile Ash. We also use the Milton Keynes Gallery as a link with our arts offer as we feel its very important the children learn about the importance of art galleries.
