SCULPTURE and ceramics are just two of the skills pupils at Roysia School have been getting to grips with during the school's art week.
Art co-ordinator Anne Thompson, said: "We do art week every year, and try to get a different artist in every day to work with each year group.

"Year 8 will be doing sculpture, while Year 7 have ceramics, and Year 6 print making."
