Artistic primary school students showed off their creative talents while celebrating Black History Month.
Students at Calverton Primary School in King George Avenue, Custom House, researched black British artists before producing artwork inspired by what they learned to showcase in an art exhibition.
A spokeswoman from the school said: “The children researched and learned about black British artists and then produced pieces of art in that style.
“The pieces showcase the children’s artistic flare from Nursery up to Year 6.”
The school recently hosted an event to showcase the artwork which will permanently feature on the walls in the newly built hall .
