Truro Prep School have a John Dyer Style Christmas

Mrs Randall’s Class from Truro Prep School have been getting very arty !

The 4 and 5 year olds have been looking at the christmas paintings by artist John Dyer.

The children painted their own ‘Cornish Christmas in the style of John Dyer’.

The children talked about their paintings and what was similar to John Dyer’s work and many of them even wrote down their feelings for the artist to see.

“I Liked the Lights”

“I like the swirly whirly stars”

“I did the surfer”

“My favorite  is the tree”

“We did the leaves”

“I painted the cat and man”

“This is a great piece of work. I am so pleased that the children have been inspired by my christmas paintings and their painting and writing is fantastic !” John Dyer.
