Year 7 artwork is endorsed by a working artist!

Year 7 have been working on a project based on the theme of ‘sweets’. Students were asked to complete artist research on Sarah Graham as a homework task. The responses were extremely impressive and one student contacted the artist herself. I have been in contact with Sarah Graham and sent images of the homework. I will keep you posted with her reply!
