Artist visit to Class 4

Today we were lucky enough to have an artist visit our class. We started the day by watching a video clip about Simon Ripley (a local printmaker). The children then explored the work of other abstract artists before taking part in the creative process – from finding inspiration in a pattern or photograph, using it to develop an abstract motif and transforming the motif into a series of original prints.   Everyone enjoyed the day and made many prints as you can see here.
