Errington Elementary Student were up to their elbows in paint, clay and textiles on Friday.

They were working with clay, painting wood and exploring textiles with artists from the Errington community.

Once a week until January, Guy Franklin, Gale Leporte and Gillian Crawley visit the school to introduce new art forms to the students. Each class in the school participates and get four visits from the artists.

The EES Parent Advisory Council sponsors the project to inspire the children to express themselves creatively and connect them to the artists in the community.
