YOUNGSTERS showed off their skills when their school held an art day. The event was held at Thorpe House School in Gerrards Cross before the half-term break and involved year two pupils making scratch art with oil pastels and those in year one going off into the woods to gather natural materials with which to print.
Reception children took part in microwave art and nursery boys created tree pictures with twigs gathered from the
Teacher Zoe Bagley who organised the day, said: “Art day is a wonderful opportunity for the boys to experiment with different techniques and materials and every year we try to introduce them to something new and exciting which they haven’t tried out in their normal art lessons.
“As you can imagine, a school day dedicated to art is something the boys look forward to every year and I’m really proud of how hard they all worked to produce some very exciting creations.”
