Classics Art Project

Award-winning artist Graham Hodgson made another visit to Heaton Manor recently to work with Year 6 students from three primaries together with students from Heaton Manor.

During the week a mural entitled Decoration was created, inspired by the artistic traditions of Pompeii and also ancient Greece. The students enjoyed listening to stories from Homer and producing their own designs for Greek vases. They all worked on the main project and learned techniques for producing particular effects, both subtle and dramatic!

It was a very successful week and the mural is a fantastic testament to everyone’s hard work and dedication.

See the gallery for more pictures and this report in the Evening Chronicle.
