Tommy's Top Tips!
Year 4 were delighted when acclaimed local artist, Tommy Leonard, visited their class recently. As part of their 'artist appreciation' studies, Year 4 had been researching online the work of the St.Helens based artist and so couldn't believe it when Tommy appeared in person to share some of his most famous work, discuss his journey and artisitic inspiration and, most exciting of all, to conduct an 'art workshop', with the children themselves. Tommy shared his top tips and this allowed all children to produce an excellent drawing based on our mining heritage within the session. Tommy was so delighted with the class that he has organised to come back on several occasions and talks are in place for an exciting project to go ahead between Parish Y4 pupils and Tommy in the not so distant future.
