Pupils bring art to life in school display

St Christopher’s Catholic Primary School in Speke turned their school hall into an art gallery for the day, opening their doors to parents, carers and school governors to come and view the pupils’ masterpieces.

The creative artwork had been produced during one of the school’s popular art weeks, with each year group focusing on a different artist.

Children donned old shirts and used a range of mediums/media and materials to create their own paintings in the style of their designated artist. From Nursery through to Year 6, the children were inspired by the work of Piet Mondrian, Joan Miro, Wassily Kandinsky, Georgia O’Keefe, Jackson Pollock, Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh and Marc Allante.

The results were astounding! Photos were proudly displayed on the school’s Twitter account and each painting was mounted and displayed for an art exhibition to truly show off the children’s work.

School was open to parents in the morning and afternoon and each class had a turn during the day to visit the exhibition and evaluate the work on display.

The paintings are now on display around the whole school building to show off the children’s talents.
