Much interest shown in free exhibition of artwork by Year Six pupils from St Nicholas Junior School, Woolbrook

THERE has been much interest in a free exhibition of artwork, staged by Year Six pupils from St Nicholas Junior School, Woolbrook.

Pictures drawn from observing and photographing people in and around Sidmouth, were put on show at the Hatton Wood room at Kennaway House.

The youngsters undertook their people research for literacy and topic work on America, using text from Jamaica Louise James, a story about an eight-year-old artist.

Some of the subjects included a woman in a red, hooded coat walking by the seafront, a man cleaning windows by Jessica Brown, a woman at a cashpoint machine drawn by Ben Ardley and Oliver Jarrett’s picture of “the man who saved my life” dressed a blue coat and with a stick.

Kennaway House manager Liz Halls (pictured viewing the results) was happy to let the children display their work for three days in half-term.
