Young artists in year 5 at North Ealing, Christ the Saviour, Selborne and Holy Family primaries enjoyed a morning of printmaking in the St Benedict’s Art Department. The workshop focused on Ealing’s architecture, taking the colours and textures of bricks, tiles and slates as inspiration. Each young artist created one half of a semi-detached house, adding patterns and textures using a variety of objects and shapes, and filling in detail and finer texture using pen.
The workshop, which was led by St Benedict’s art teacher Kate Linton, was an opportunity for children to meet year 5 pupils from other schools, to take a closer look at the architectural detail of Ealing’s houses, and to spend a whole morning working on an art project. It was the latest event in St Benedict’s community outreach programme.
