St Marys

Art with the National Gallery

woman_thumbsky_thumbWe have been very fortunate to have a termly visit from Viyki Turnbull an artist lecturer from the National Gallery. During her visits Vikki has been exploring some of the paintings from the National Gallery collection and revealing to the children the stories that they hold. Inspired by these images the children have then been making their own art with great results. A big thank you to Viyki for such interesting and enjoyable art sessions.
