Year three pupils at Ramsey Junior School were treated to a special visit from the botanical artist Sarah McGonigle for their Arts Mark Project.
Sarah showcased her artwork to the pupils on May 9, and all the children thoroughly enjoyed learning about plants and producing their own sketches.
Year three teacher Jane Ross said: "The children were able to get some experience of what a botanical artist does and talk about the history of plants and relate that to the local area."
“The children had a whale of a time."
Ramsey Junior School has organised more trips and art workshops that the children were starved of during Covid to help them develop.
All the artwork produced by the children will go into a large sketchbook as part of a major work for the Arts Mark Project.
The Arts Mark Project is a national initiative which encourages children to experience lots of different art forms.
