Pupils feed their cre­ativ­ity

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

OAK Tree Pri­mary School, which was re­cently awarded healthy school sta­tus for its work in en­cour­ag­ing pupils to en­joy a health­ier approach to life, has just com­pleted its latest week­long project. As part of the on­go­ing ef­forts to pro­mote bet­ter life­styles, young­sters have cre­ated a ma­jor piece of art for the school, with the help of artist- in-res­i­dence Chris­tine Thomas. They spent last week work­ing on two huge ban­ners de­pict­ing dif­fer­ent fruit, veg­eta­bles and grains, and they will be erected in the new school hall on the Oak Tree Road, South Ash­ford site. Pupils se­lected their still-life sub­jects and recre­ated them in a variety of ways from acrylic and 3D paints, fab­ric, se­quins and mir­rors, to com­puter imag­ing.
