A New Perspective

We filled our morning with maths whilst LG was at playgroup as we were off to the art session for Home Ed children at the Hatton this afternoon.  It was excellent.

There is an exhibition on at the Hatton at the moment called Journeys In Colour by Mary Webb.  She is an abstract artist which is not usually my thing, but Hazel, who runs the Home Ed group did an excellent job of explaining her work and made it very accessible.  The kids then had a chance to experiment with their own interpretation of Mary’s style and produced quite a few pictures.  LB1 in particular seemed quite buoyed by seeing a style of art that it seemed simple enough for him to emulate.  They were talking about it all afternoon!
