Mini Art Projects
Each term we are going to set ‘Mini Art Projects’ inspired by a theme, this is not a compulsory homework, it is just a way to promote art across the school and inspire Monty’s budding artists.
This half term for our ‘Mini Art Project’ we asked pupils to take their inspiration from the season autumn and create some artwork around the theme of ‘Lovely Leaves’.
Mrs Patterson was super impressed by all of the ‘Lovely Leaves’ creations that she received. The use of different media and the creative ways that leaves were used was truly fantastic; well done to all those that got involved.
