Antarctic Inspiration

 

This term Class 4 are learning about our Polar Regions. As well as understanding the geography of these areas, we have been inspired by the life of Edward Adrian Wilson, the Cheltenham scientist and doctor who accompanied Scott on both his Antarctic expeditions and recorded their adventures in his stunning art work. It was very exciting to learn more about Wilson through a workshop provided by The Wilson (Cheltenham Art Gallery and Museum), exploring his Victorian childhood and Antarctic explorations and having a go at some watercolour in his  style. The results were stunning!
