Swanage youngsters take to the sea for work ahead of Purbeck Arts Week

YOUNGSTERS at St Mark’s Primary School in Swanage have been getting ready for Purbeck Arts Week – with a little help from local artist Sophie Jenkins.

Pupils in years 3 and 4 produced a banner in the style of Henri Matisse, who used collage designs of brightly coloured shapes, for arts week, which has an Under the Sea theme.

They also produced their own individual creations using paper and card.

Sophie told the children she had enjoyed art from an early age and showed them examples of her work, which included seascapes of the Dorset coastline.

She said: “I really enjoyed working with the lovely children and am looking forward to seeing them at the exhibition.”

The banner will go on display at Rollington Barn as part of Purbeck Arts Week celebrations, with the children and their families invited to attend the event on Friday, May 24.
