Internationally acclaimed artist Jenny Muncaster spent a whole day at Mowden in the art department, with her assistants, making amazingly colourful canvasses with acrylic paints. Selected artist from Years 6 to 8 were invited to join the workshop, which came about thanks to the success of Lydia Wilson, who won the National 2016 Art Education Prize.
