Promising Picassos and mini Monets have been busy with their paintbrushes at a primary school in Gants Hill.

Classrooms and corridors have been festooned with colour at Gearies Primary School as part of an whole school exhibition.

The exhibition, which is made up of art by the budding artists from Reception to Year 6, highlighted the pupils’ creative spirit.

Nick Felix, art co-ordinator, and Year 2 teacher said students at the school, in Waremead Road, Gants Hill had enjoyed the opportunity to get creative.

He said: “Every year group from Reception to Year 6 have been showcasing their creativity in art over this academic year.

“There is a huge range of work on display, inspired by many different famous artists.

“Children are also running a workshop for their peers and families where they can explore and create their own artwork, from Japanese calligraphy to Matisse inspired cut out collages.

“We are also screening films shot earlier in the year for our annual film festival.

“This exhibition has been a great opportunity for the school to come together and celebrate the creativity and artistic talents throughout Gearies.”
