The Abbey from the North Green

Our “Arty Abbey” session invited families to explore the Abbey building using art techniques.

Sketching shapes and patterns was encouraged through games and challenges before families were invited to paint images of the Abbey or their favourite sections and patterns.

All families throughout the day were invited to contribute to a final montage of the Abbey’s West Front to encourage thinking about scale.

The work can be tough, but even the cold and rain don’t bother me as I enjoy it so much. I love every day that I spend at the Abbey – just being here makes me smile.
