MORPETH school students have put Ancient Greece in the picture in their latest project with an award-winning artist.
Following previous successful link-ups with Graham Hodgson of Hawthorn Arts, the King Edward VI School Classics department organised a large mural project for pupils in different year groups and it has now been completed.
The mural is made up of four panels. The top is the west pediment of the Parthenon, the two sides are Caryatids and the base is a view of the Underworld with Hades, Cerberus and a Latin lesson.
There is a fun element to it, as a small TARDIS appears poised to rescue the students. Dido and Aeneas also appear to the side between the pillars and the Underworld.
Among those who enjoyed learning new techniques during the project were Year 12 student Edward Hantman and Rachel Harland (Year 11).
Head of school at KEVI, Deborah Reeman, said: “This has been a fantastic project. The students involved have really enjoyed working with Graham and the artwork will transform the Latin and Classics learning area.”
