ART & D.T. CLUB NEWS

Miss Quinn runs an Art or D.T. Club each term. Children will have the opportunity to study an artist, style or technique in depth and create their own pieces.

Keep an eye on this page to see what we’ve been creating and even have a go at home!

Look out for competition entries and skills' development on the Art Club display.
