Sophie Martin, a very talented artist, came to visit our school in July 2013 for the first time. She spent a day sketching our school and the views around our school site. We were able to watch her at work and chat to her about her techniques. She painted watercolours for Miss Joel and Mrs Morgan when they left our school.
She has revisited us and done further work with us. Some of our work can be seen in Forton Service Station on the M6 (Motto)
Sophie painted the water-colour that makes our beautiful banner at the head of each webpage. We think this perfectly encapsulates our rural setting and the style of our buildings.

She has cards and work for sale in various shops in Kendal and she often has stalls at high quality art and craft fairs in the north west. She also undertakes private commissions.
You can also see some of her work at the Wordsworth museum in Grasmere near Dove Cottage.
