Here at Blessed Mother Teresa's, we understand the importance and excitement of immersing our pupils in good quality art activities, learning from the 'best of the best'. Our children will experience working with examples of artwork created by both globally known and local Artists. Through our Curriculum Vehicles, we endeavour to ensure that pupils have the opportunities to visit Art galleries, both physically and via the world wide web, as well as meeting artists face to face.

Tremendous Trips Out!At Blessed Mother Teresa's we aim to provide a rich and varied curriculum that extends outside the classroom. Year 2 recently visited Walsall Art Gallery to have a idea about what an art gallery should look like. They experienced paintings, pictures as well as scultures...
The Best of The Best
Roy Fox Lichtenstein (; October 27, 1923 – September 29, 1997) was an American pop artist. During the 1960s, along with Andy Warhol, Jasper Johns, and James Rosenquist among others, he became a leading figure in the new art movement. His work defined the premise of pop art through parody. Inspired by the comic strip, Lichtenstein produced precise compositions that documented while they parodied, often in a tongue-in-cheek manner. His work was influenced by popular advertising and the comic book style. He described pop art as "not 'American' painting but actually industrial painting". His paintings were exhibited at the Leo Castelli Gallery in New York City.
Whaam! and Drowning Girl are generally regarded as Lichtenstein's most famous works. Drowning Girl, Whaam!, and Look Mickey are regarded as his most influential works. His most expensive piece is Masterpiece, which was sold for $165 million in January 2017.
