YOUNGSTERS at St Thomas’s CE School, Garstang, have been taking part in this month’s nationwide Big Draw, in which schools, museums, galleries, heritage sites, libraries have all get involved in arty activities.

Pupils at St Thomas’ took part in the special Big Draw day with art workshops taking place in the school hall. The children had the opportunity to take part in a range of activities, including marble painting, drawing, glass painting and making collages plus a large Art Attack-style school logo.

Writing about the event for the school website, Year 6 pupils Lauren West and Zoe Stephen said: “We also had to paint our own hand and print it on paper for a hall display. One of our teachers, Miss Claire Merifield, and assistant Ms Andrea Wood set it all up and worked really hard. We all enjoyed it and we all say a big thank you to them.”

Miss Merifield, art co-ordinator, said: “The children loved getting involved in so many different art activities and produced some fantastic work.”
