Young artists have been showcasing why art is an important part of the curriculum.
Leamington Studio Artists (LSA) has been working on a new project to support art in schools.
King’s High School is the first to get involved, and pupils taking part designed a piece of artwork which illustrated their individual strengths.
School art director Sarah Jordan said “Art at King’s is widely celebrated, and our girls are encouraged to be creative in as many diverse ways as possible. We know the benefits of the arts within a well-rounded curriculum.
“We hope the girls’ involvement continues to foster their love for the arts and empowers them to embark on a creative future pathway.”
And LSA trustee Chan Uppal said the group will continue working to support art in schools.
She said: “We want to help youngsters develop their creativity and imagination through art, as the benefits go far beyond the classroom. Many schools have cut back on arts activities but they are so important.”
