Schoolchildren have spent the week creating their own art pieces before they went to sale last week.

Almost 150 pupils at Gislingham Primary School have tried their hand at painting, pottery, collages and drawing, with the finished work going on display in the school’s assembly hall last Friday.

The theme of the project is ‘Art that makes me smile’, allowing children the creative licence to let them take inspiration from whatever they want, from Star Wars themed pieces to paintings of pets.

All the proceeds from the art sale have gone to pay for a professional artist to come into school to teach the pupils some new skills. Picture: Mark Bullimore Photography 2022.

Money raised from the sale of work will go towards a fund for artists to visit the Broadfields Road school in the future.

“The idea is that the show costs the least amount of money as possible,” said Roz Gilbert, art lead at the school.

“The children have absolutely loved it. The great thing is the project will also give something back to them as it will help to pay for guests to come in and speak to them.”
