St James' Mural

Class: Art Year: 2018 - 2019

Last week, we were joined by Matthew and Simon. Matthew is an ex-pupil who has a company called 'The Colourful North'.  He has been working with Mr King and our children in coming up with design ideas that capture something about our past, present and future.  Some of the design ideas were sent off to Simon, a graffiti artist, who collated them all into a colourful mural.  A team of children got to muck in with the spray painting and colouring.  We think that the final piece looks really amazing and is a perfect backdrop to further plans in that corner of the playground where we are planning on adding a drama/art area.


Thank you to Dianne for helping prepare the wall and of course Matthew and Simon for choosing to work with us.
