We were very excited last week when it was Year 3’s turn to visit Sarah in Wymondham’s Start-Studio. Our first ‘school trip’ since 2019! Before visiting, we read The Dot by ‘Peter H. Reynolds, a story about a girl called Vashti, who thinks that she can’t do art. With a little encouragement, she discovers enjoyment in the process of creating and realises that anybody can be an artist really!
Our artists used acrylic paint and Q-Tips (cotton buds), to create an animal picture of their choosing. They learnt about colour mixing, dot forming, being big and bold, and taking care and time to create a piece of work that they will proudly see on display in the summer.
Here is a small selection of our artists at work.
