Art Club

All students that participated in Junior Art Club experienced a detonation of expression and creativity during our first session on Friday. This was a perfect opportunity to create an artwork and talk about who we all are.We used our names and recreated an unreal creature using oil pastels on A3 paper.

Looking forward to meeting all of our budding artists again this Friday. New members are welcomed for both Junior and Senior Art Club.

Check out the gallery below for some great photos of students enjoying themselves and being very creative.
