Young­sters put their art into paint­ing

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

As part of the school’s Art Week, Mr Pri­est­ley spent the morn­ing with the ju­nior school on Fe­bru­ary 9 teach­ing them all about the in­tri­ca­cies of his work.

Among many new skills, chil­dren learnt how to draw por­traits from the front and side and then to com­bine them to cre­ate an artist ‘mash up’. In the af­ter­noon they re­turned to their class­rooms to put into prac­tise what they had learnt.

The

younger

chil­dren cre­ated Pi­casso style pa­per plate col­lages and the older ones honed their draw­ing skills and went on to cre­ate painted fi­nal pieces.

Mrs Ter­rar, ju­nior school head, said: “Paul has been a fan­tas­tic mo­ti­va­tor and teacher for the chil­dren. I think the chil­dren have sur­prised them­selves with the work they have pro­duced us­ing their new skills.”
