Talented artists at Christ Church
Fifteen of our talented artists, from Year 4 and 5, have been to the art department at The Friary to create 3 canvases: The rainbow fish, The Gruffalo and our take on a Lichenstien. These will be displayed around our school in September. The children were taught how to work with acrylic paint and how to successfully produce different tones and textures. Keep at look out for them in school, when they are displayed!
