Five pupils from Heronswood Primary School travelled to the Royal Grammar School in Worcester, for a day of art in a workshop called ‘Down by the River’.

During the day they joined other schools in the Rivers Academy Trust to learn more about the impressionist movement and how to paint in the style of Claude Monet. The workshop was led by Mr Richard Gilbert, Head of Art at RGS and the talented young artists produced two pieces of work on the day which they brought back to display at school.

“It was an inspirational day of art, the children thoroughly enjoyed visiting RGS and learning to paint in a different style.” Helen Mikolajczyk

The day consisted of a workshop ran by the art staff at the Royal Grammar School where the budding artists were given a guided tour of the art and design department, admiring the GCSE and A Level exhibitions. After that, they were given time to study and explore the impressionist art movement with a chance to produce their own works of art of the landscape of the River Severn.
