Junior art is led by Ms Hawkes, who is an inspiring and encouraging art teacher. The quality of work that the Junior School students produce is outstanding – some images are shown below. Ms Hawkes believes that anyone can learn to be a much better artist and express their own individuality. She encourages students to explore, make mistakes and learn that they can make art, whether they currently feel they are “good” or “bad” at art currently!
