Never mind 15 minutes of fame, school children had a whole day of it when their Andy Warhol-inspired artwork was displayed for all to see.
St Edwards Church of England Primary School in Havering Drive, Romford, held a creative arts week for pupils from nursery to Year 6.
Each group had a different artist to base their work on, with nursery given pop-art creator Andy Warhol while Reception were tasked with creating their own Matisse-like work.
Year 1 looked at the work of Seurat, Year 2 Henri Rousseau, Year 3 Vincent Van Gogh, Year 4 Dali, Year 5 Klimt and last but not least, Monet, for the Year 6 youngsters.
Gerrard, from Class 3C, said: “I liked the art exhibition because the work was magnificent and the children had worked in all kinds of artistic ways.”
