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 Shrine of St Edward the Confessor is one of the most powerful features of the Abbey. To stand in the presence of a man who is both a saint and a monarch is awe-inspiring.
