Matisse Art

Mrs Whiteley-McPhee recently attended an art course at Edinburgh College of Art. The course
was based around the techniques of Henri Matisse and Mrs Whiteley-McPhee has shared her
experience of the course with all of the staff at West Barns.


Impressionist Adventures at the John Gray Centre

Recently P2/3 and P4/5 visited the John Gray centre to take part in a workshop called ‘Impressionist Adventure.’
They looked at examples of landscapes by Claude Monet and created their own landscapes of East Lothian using
the same techniques. They also learned about how people lived and worked in East Lothian in the past.

Thanks to Ola for offering these free workshops to our school. Here is a link to see our P2/3 pupils in action!
