The pupils, from Years 7 to 9, came together to work on six murals based on six countries: France, Germany, Poland, Spain, Portugal and Italy.

The pupils researched work done by their favourite artists before testing out their styles using different mediums, from painting right through to graphic design.

The different styles were then collaged together to create work based on one of the six countries.
