In remembrance of Black History, Year 2 are studying the work of local born artist Chris Ofili.
Chris Ofili hails from none other than Manchester! Not only was he the first black artist to win a Turner Prize, but he was also awarded a CBE for his contributions to the art world.
This week we looked at one of Chris Ofili's most notable paintings, No woman, no cry. The children drew on their existing knowledge of people such as Ruby Bridges and Rosa Parks to share their thoughts on the story behind this painting.
Here are some of the comments made by 2AD:
"...she is sad because she is in jail."
"...she drank from the wrong fountain."
"...she went to the wrong pool."
" she didn't move for a white person."
"...she sat on the front of the bus and got arrested."
