BIG­GER PIC­TURE: Work of art draws to­gether pupils’ images of vil­lage life

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

YOUNG­STERS worked with an artist to pro­duce a pic­ture even big­ger than they are. Chil­dren from Egerton Pri­mary School worked with Eger­ton­based artist Cathy Hill who made their draw­ings of lo­cal life into a huge pic­ture for the school re­cep­tion. Ms Hill taught the pupils her tech­nique of us­ing a knit­ting nee­dle and crayons, to cre­ate the 6ft by 4ft pic­ture. She said: “They did their own draw­ings, press­ing lines into the pa­per with the nee­dle and then us­ing crayons on top. “The pic­ture showed the pub, church, shop and vil­lage hall and scenes of the chil­dren go­ing to church at har­vest fes­ti­val and Christ­mas. “They all pro­duced won­der­ful draw­ings and en­joyed learn­ing a new tech­nique. “The pic­ture is very vi­brant and colour­ful.”
