Inspiring young artists!
Year 6 study Daniel Mackie
Well, they say social media is a strange world but nothing's been more strange than coming across a 11year old's art class studying none other than the renowned artist, Daniel Mackie! 

Arts teacher Elizabeth Hutchin, also known as @Busyli33ie, has been running various creative workshops with school groups in Somerset in the run up to the Taunton Live performing and creative arts festival this July.

In one year 6 class of 10 and 11 year olds, she asked them to look at Daniel's work to inspire designs for a creative pair of socks - and here's some of the wonderful results. Well done kids!

Check out the Taunton Live website or follow @LiveTaunton for more including their upcoming exhibition!

Thank you so much for the “exposure” for Taunton Live 2016, but also your very kind gesture towards the children involved. They have truly been inspired by your work and will be bowled over by your generosity.
I too cannot believe the power of social media – one tweet has led to so much!
Please take a look at my website (www.busylizzieart.co.uk) and Facebook page (Busylizzie Art &Literacy Ltd) to see the range of my own work! I too write a blog – but have been a bit busy in schools over the last two weeks – I will link back to your site next time I write!
Huge thanks again…
