"We chose this bag because in our school we do a lot of art to help us with our learning and to make our school a colourful and exciting environment.

We think that everyone should be able to make art because you can show how you feel when you do art work and use your imagination. Art is creative. Art is fun! We use art in our learning even during Literacy lessons and pictures help us to understand stories better. We all think art is for everyone: young and old, creative and uncreative."

Chosen by Year 2 at Colvestone Primary School
