Meet an artist and bird on board

This week we had artist Jane King visit the class. She showed her drawings of buildings and cityscapes. Jane had found us through Craft Central’s network and her work was really relevant to the subjects we have been looking at in class – brilliant! She helped teach the warm up drawing of our boxes and then we started our experiment with paint on boards, drawing from our sketches of the Bird Cafe. As the children worked, they each had a moment to sit on the step of the studio and show Jane this term’s portfolio. What an experience for 8 year olds: being treated as an equal fellow artist, showing and taking about their work with Jane. Big thank you again!
