An art historian has praised the quality of the work of pupils at Terrington Hall School’s annual art exhibition.

The Year Three to Year Eight pupils submitted work across a wide range of styles, including watercolours, oil paintings, pencil drawings, pastels, charcoals, collages and batik.

The exhibition was organised by the school’s head of art Natalie Glen and art teacher Phil Magson.

Pippa Bell, who judged this year’s competition, said: There are several pieces of art here that I would happily buy and hang on my walls.

“I am particularly impressed by the quality of the brushwork and the skillful use of colour. There are some technically brilliant pieces, but what I admire most is the range of individual expression on display.

“Art is all about being prepared to have a go, and I’m so pleased to see so many children having the courage to do just that.”
