I love these portraits of P6 pupils with their friends. Collage, monoprinting, paint and chalk.
Here's a film made with a P6 class in May 2016. We needed to fill an hour in class, so the children illustrated one line of Andy Stewart's brilliant song each using pencil. Watch it on Vimeo here.

These 35mm slides were made after watching some Norman MacLaren films (Dots, 1940 and Begone Dull Care, 1949). We made them into a video with Charlie Parker's version of White Christmas as the soundtrack. [metaslider id=658]

Some of the highlights of the second Summer Art Club week at West barns Studios. We spent a morning making quick studies of a selection of guitars and the following day they were made into these striking collages. [metaslider id=265]

Based on a Matisse still life paper cut out, the children produced these lovely, cheerful works in a few hours last week. [metaslider id=216]
These were made during the Summer Art Club, too. The children were aged 6 -12 and they all produced great works. [metaslider id=228]
Some highlights... [metaslider id=202]
