Confess it, no-one knew exactly what Mr Shuttleworth was driving at when he proposed “Literacy through Art” as one of the HSA’s Learning Treats this year. But after an extraordinarily rich, week-long programme that immersed the children in wordplay and illustration, we finally got the idea.
On the final day, when the hall had been transformed into a gallery by our tireless premises staff, a team of volunteers – thank YOU! – helped hang the exhibition of what the children had produced all week. Delphinus provided cupcakes. And it was truly wonderful.
