Delight Rainforest Project in Year 4

Year 4 have thoroughly enjoyed their six weeks working with a professional artist from Paintbox and their class teachers to explore a range of art materials, techniques and developing skills such as drawing, pattern and paper-craft. This has built their creative confidence, resilience and wellbeing whilst improving their visual arts knowledge and skills to enrich topic learning.

The children created a range of 2D and 3D artworks which transformed the classroom into the Amazon Rainforest. Friends and family were invited to a private view of an in-school exhibition.
