Foundation 2 had a great day at @HarrogateFlower Show. They took part in planting their own hanging baskets to take home, looking at the amazing show gardens and finding out about lots of different plants and flowers. Surprisingly we had the chance to do a bit of stone carving with a chisel and a mallet with Matombo. We also enjoyed listening to the Cliffton and Lightcliffe Brass Band and looking at graffiti art too! What a cultural day!

Look at our fabulous cats in the style of Laurel Burch. We loved the bright colours and simple shapes of Laurel's cats and so decided to draw some of our own. We drew the outline a bit at a time using black felt tips and then chose a pattern to draw inside them. Some of us chose circles, some chose triangles, zigzags and even flowers. We filled them in using pastels to create a vibrant look. What a great job we did!

Following our farm trip we looked at Marion Boddy-Evans' amazing sheep paintings and tried our own. We colour-mixed shades of blue and green for the water, land and sky and then finger painted our sheep on top. What a great job we did!
We tweeted examples of our work to Marion Boddy-Evans @painter and she tweeted straight back! She really liked our work and said that we had 'made her day!' Wonderful to have recognition from a 'real' artist recognising Early Years' artists!
