What better way to apply these skills than for a spectacular Stonehenge calendar and a snazzy Christamas card? Take a look at how we created our art. If you want a few tips then we would be happy to help!

” I enjoyed learning how to press harder to create a darker effect on my Christmas Card. I was really impressed by how well the colors blended together” Neve

“I enjoyed using the watercolor pencils to make landscapes. When we got to do our own, I chose to do a sunset picture with orange, reds and yellows. ” Oliver

We also used our collage skills!

” I enjoyed making a Stone Henge picture and mixing different shades of blue.” Harrison

“I loved making the colour darker as I got further from the sun.” Max
