Illuminated manuscripts from the Middle Ages provided the inspiration behind today's art workshop in St Paul's Primary school, Woodhouse Eaves. Pupils designed a tile based on their first initial and learned about text styles and lettering. We used Artform paint, which is completely suitable for any surface and comes in the brightest colours.
As part of the BEST (Barrow Extended Schools Team) group, each of the Primary schools in the cluster have had the opportunity to decide on an arty taster session. I have delivered some of these myself, including this project. It is hoped that more schools will decide to provide art based after school and lunchtime clubs in the area.
