Term Six welcomed an art exhibition at Primary for all students to enjoy. Each class had the opportunity to learn about a variety of artists and their famous creative styles. Students were proud to have their completed art on display throughout the day for all year groups to celebrate.
Overall, the art exhibition was a great success, ‘Everyone’s work was amazing’ commented Amelia Brown (Y2) and student's interpretation of each artist's style was extremely impressive.
On the run up to the art exhibition, Y2 enjoyed a visit to the Secondary Art department, where they enjoyed painting sea creatures. McAuley Webster said he especially 'enjoyed painting the colourful jellyfish!'
