Our Year 6 will be the only class in Gateshead, to be exhibiting their Art Work, alongside the Artists.  How exciting!

We began this work on Monday, and next week we will visit the Gallery to work with Artist, Shirley Wells.  Our drawings will be turned into silk paintings.

Come along on Saturday 7th March (1.30pm) to see our finished  work on display, watch the arrival of Richard Wheater’s Scooter and Tree work and receive a free goody bag!
