ART Home Learning
Creating is good for you and it's fun.
Art can help us relax, express our feelings and improve our focus on other tasks.
Thank you to the wonderful St Michael's artists who sent in some fantastic photos of their artwork during the last full lockdown. I wonder what creations you will share this time around - scroll down to see! Below are lots of new links and ideas as well as the previous Art Ideas Banks. If you find any good ideas / weblinks do let me know! I love trying out new things.

Explore one of these galleries through their virtual tours. Which is your favourite piece of art? Maybe create your own version inspired by it or write a description or poem about it. Can I guess the picture from your description?
