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.
He 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.”
