Celebrating Children's Art Week

Celebrating Children's Art Week

by Wilhelmina Perry

Drawing insects from the Natural History Museum.

Every Wednesday at 11am we travel through Zoom to visit and draw different wonders of the world(s). We have travelled to the Arctic, to space, to the Amazon rainforest, the Smithsonian Natural History Museum in America, or even travel back in time to visit the people that we admire most.

In celebration of Children's Art Week taking place taking place online from the 29th June - 13th July, we are sharing some of our creations.

People we admire

My Mum, My Hero

By Adela

'The lines of the forehead shows the decades of her life.

The dots represent the sweat of the effort.

You can see the dark side of her battle but on the other side she has the bright side that shows the light of battle.'

K1 De Ultimate 

by Fatima

K1 De Ultimate is a famous Nigerian Fuji musician. I chose him because his music is so talented and full of Social, Moral, political and current affairs worldwide. He is a legend.
