On Tuesday 12th June, Norwich Lower School hosted an Inter School Art Day. A competition was launched in March for children to submit a piece of artwork based on the theme 'Norwich - A fine city'. From the entries, four children from each school were selected to take part in a collaborative art workshop at Norwich Lower School. Sarah Cannell, a professional artist who specialises in expressive art, led the workshop supported by Mrs Wright. The children continued with the theme of their original entries but used different media.
They used willow sticks to create simple outlines of Norwich landmarks with permanent ink. They then experimented with a variety of techniques to add colour to their work. Firstly, they used primary coloured inks and sponge rollers to add patterns and then they used watercolour paints to add bold colours to their work. They also added silhouettes of hares to their final pieces. Superb artwork was produced, displaying a high level of both talent and skill.
Thank you to the children and accompanying adults from Rackheath Primary, Bignold Primary, Sprowston Junior and George White Junior.
