TV’s Art Attack star visits the PRU

THE presenter of Children’s TV Art Attack Lloyd Warbey was at South Ockendon’s Phoenix Centre on Friday (14 March).

He spent the day with the pupils creating a Big Art Project based on the pupils’ current learning topic of the Ancient Egyptians.
Each pupil was involved in the entire process – from the design, creation and sculpting of the final piece.

The aim of the day was to give pupils an opportunity to develop their creative and artistic skills with a popular and well-known TV personality and artist as well as helping them develop their team-work, collaboration and co-operation skills.

Lloyd was delighted to run his own bespoke master-class specially designed for the individual needs of the pupils.

pruHe said: “From a young age I have always been inspired to be creative and expressive through art, so it’s wonderful to be in a position to help inspire a new generation to develop their personal confidence and creativity through art also.”

Assistant head teacher Doreen Ellis said; “We were really pleased that Lloyd was able to give up his time to spend with our pupils as he is such a well-known TV personality.

“He was very inspiring, particularly being a local young man and the pupils thoroughly enjoyed the day, producing a fantastic piece of art.”

The Phoenix Centre in Corve Lane is Thurrock’s Primary Pupil Referral Unit.
