International Month, Speed Painter - Jon Hicks visits Harpenden AcademyPosted on 16/10/2018
As part of our International month I invited the speed painter, Jon Hicks, to school. Jon performed in our assembly producing an upside down painting to an African soundtrack, climaxing in a painting of Nelson Mandela. We live streamed the event on Twitter and the children were amazed at his talent and inspired to have a go themselves!
The assemblies followed by workshops for each class. The children produced world cityscapes with each child painting their own building which produced a class canvas. Pop in to the library to have a look at them in our art gallery.
