Creating colourful artwork

More news, no ads



Patterns and colours were the themes for an art day at Robert Miles Infants’ School, Bingham, on Tuesday.

All the pupils, aged four to seven, took part in the event, producing a range of eye catching-artwork.

The youngsters were split into mixed age groups and tried their hand at three different activities.

These were Indonesian batik, where wax crayons are used to make designs on fabric, scoring into paint to create patterns and collage making.

The school’s art co-ordinator, Mrs Karen Doel, said each class had picked a different activity themselves.

She said: “It was really successful. The children really enjoyed it.

“The standard of work is fantastic and seeing them work in mixed age groups is great. They all seemed to be really enthusiastic.

“There was a lot of cutting, a lot of painting and a lot of glueing.

“They were using different skills,” she said.

In the afternoon, parents were invited to an exhibition in the school hall where artwork the children had done previously was on display.

Mrs Doel said each piece had been sent to be professionally framed.

Parents were able to buy their children’s work at the exhibition.
