Our children were invited to take part in an art class at The Westleigh School and get a feel for what art lessons are like in Year 7. They looked at an art style used by the artist Iain MacArthur, who has created zentangle animal artwork. We used oil pastels to create a base for our colour and then we used different shapes and marks to create patterns that would transfer onto our paper. We used a biro pen to press our patterns firmly onto one side of our paper. Once the pattern work was finished we looked at the colourful patterns we had created.
The children were superb: they worked hard, tried their best and represented our school brilliantly.
