Artist in Residence

Joanne Kerr, who is currently artist in residence at Sumburgh Head, came to visit our school on Wednesday 18th May. She worked with P5/6 and P6/7 in the afternoon and showed us all the beautiful field sketches of flowers that she had painted last year. Lots of these are also wild flowers that we get here in Shetland. Joanne showed us how she preserves and display flowers for botanical records. Everyone had a go at drawing a plant. Finally Joanne showed us her amazing mini portable museum, called ‘Mystery of the Magellan Daisy and Whalers’.
