We have all admired the amazing work of talented artists, but this week as part of the Bakewell Craft Fair Year 1 and 2 children from Bakewell Infants exhibited their paintings to the public.
The proud Head of School Peter Aanonson described how, the children have been researching and studying the work of Turner for the last topic. We are so lucky to be within walking distance of many stunning natural landscapes that the children have been able to visit and sketch. The children’s final piece shows off all their new skills of using washes, tints and tones.
The organiser of The Bakewell Craft & Gift Fair Stuart Green commented, “The fair often has local artists and crafter's displaying and selling their paintings, candles, cards, models and other intricate craft work, together with a selection of giftware. Now it has been a pleasure to have the next generation from “The Bakewell Infant School” proudly exhibiting their lovely artwork as well
Ollie (Year 1) visiting with his parents proudly exclaimed, “That’s my art.”
Executive Head teacher Sue Beckett described how the school always aimed to be at the heart of the community with a curriculum that allowed children to excel in the widest possible way.
The Bakewell Craft & Gift Fair opens from early March until mid-December every weekend and all the school holidays, located in the Brigade Hall which is just through Bath Gardens in the Town Centre, and is well worth a visit.
