Art Attack for budding artists

Monday, 02 April, 2012 - Modified on Tuesday, 03 April, 2012 at 4:31 pm



Brewood Library was turned into an art gallery on Saturday when work completed by pupils from St. Mary & St. Chad First School in Brewood went on display.
Children, who attend an after school Art Club run by Jane Plowright, proudly saw their work displayed in the Library and received certificates for their achievements.
The pupils have produced a wide and varied yet always excellent body of work encompassing impressionism, Oils, the work of Jackson Pollock and even creating mythical lists in the style of Dr. Seuss, 'Please try to remember the first of Octember!'.
Jackson Pollock was an American painter and famous 'Abstract expressionist' who worked in the 1940's. Instead of using an easel and brushes he put huge canvases on the floor and dripped, flung and splashed paint all over them. 
If you want a green kangaroo, skateboard TV or a Jeep a fly kite, make a list and wait for the first of Octember as this mythical day is when such mythical items will be delivered! 
When presenting the certificates, Mrs. Plowright was keen to stress how hard all the artists had worked and how enthusiastically they had flung themselves into the different styles and thought processes.
The exhibition is well worth a visit and will remain in the library throughout the Easter fortnight.
