The girls who are currently in Year Five were invited to a private viewing of their art at Wolverhampton Art Gallery. The work on display was created when the girls participated in a workshop last term and was based on the work of local artist, Melanie Tomlinson. Melanie trained in illustration at Birmingham School of Art. She works from her studio at home in Birmingham and also as an artist leading participatory projects. She has won several awards for her work and her sculptures can be found in collections in this country and abroad. Her creative process involves using original illustrations printed onto metal, often combining these with other materials or found objects. Our girls worked with a screen printing technique. Wolverhampton Art Gallery staff were so impressed with our girls artwork that they decided to display it as an exhibition, something normally only reserved for secondary school. Additionally, the girls were also awarded an Arts Discover Award — a nationally recognised award.
