ARTISTIC BUNCH: Reception children from West Street Primary School at their art exhibition (S)

The works of renowned artists have inspired youngsters at a Colne primary school to host their own exhibition.

The creative children from West Street Primary School produced pieces in the style of success stories, including George Seurat, Vincent Van Gogh, Andy Goldsworthy, Piet Mondrian and designer Roberto Cavalli.As part of Art Week, the pupils used a range of art techniques and materials, developing their skills in pastels, sewing, printing, designing, painting and drawing.

Parents were invited to a private viewing, where children from Years One to Six showcased their work.

Assistant headteacher Catherine Duerden said: “It was a great week and the children have loved learning about the artist and creating their own art pieces.

“My Year Six children have worked extremely hard and excelled themselves in their national test.”

Children from West Street Nursery also ended the term creatively with traditional May Pole dancing.

Nursery teacher Judi Blackburn said: “It shows great skill in co-ordination, following instructions and movement as well as learning to concentrate.

“The children and the parents loved it and it’s a good way to maintain some of the traditional aspects of our country.”
