Colourful paintings created by children were put on display as part of a year-long art project.
Over 250 pictures filled the hall at Crabtree Junior School in Harpenden at an open evening to mark the end of the ‘Year of Art’ project.
Pupils worked with the local artist, Liz Sergeant, exploring famous artists such as Kandinsky and Matisse. They then created their own response to the work that they have seen using a range of different materials.
Headteacher, Ian Pattrick, said: “We wanted to offer the opportunity for each child to be inspired by working directly with a local artist.
“As a result of these workshops, they have explored new techniques and expanded their understanding and enjoyment of art.”

Artist Liz added: “The children have challenged themselves and each other to produce a piece of work that they can be proud of.
“Now that their work has been mounted and displayed for the exhibition, we have all been wowed by the results of their creativity.”
