Whole school class of art

In Science, Year 3 are learning about light and shadow. The children drew vases and then used blended oil pastels to create light and shade. What fantastic work!

So wonderful to be part of the Faces and Places project , run by the National Portrait Gallery. Artist Ian Crighton gave workshops in all Year 4 and 5 classes and these are some of the amazing results!

Continuing their Africa theme, Year 2 looked at Ndebele art. They marked out lines with pencil and then carefully painted them black before adding colour.
