Big Painting – Decorative panels at Musicport

Great excitement this weekend as Musicport Festival sprung into life at The Pavillion in Whitby – musicians from all over the world came to play their music to excited crowds. As part of the festival a series of visual arts workshops took place with Primary School children from Whitby notably¬†West Cliff School Primary and¬†Airy Hill Primary – The giant boards had to be prepared and drawn up from elements of the children’s designs prior to the saturday and sunday painting workshops led by Whitby based fine artist Bridget Wilkinson and myself.

A fine time was had by all with the children showing remarkable levels of concentration throughout the workshops The children from West Cliff worked on the Jelly Fish with Bridget and I worked with the Airy Hill Children on the giant octopus.

The panels will join the 6 other panels completed by Whitby school children last year on permanent display at Whitby Pavillion.
