Beau Creates

01 May 2020

Beau A (Year 4)  has created a series of Pop Art using the app Procreate. Read below to see what Beau has to say, and which one is his favourite! 

"My favourite is the hot dog but the doughnut one is my Mum's favourite!

I am really enjoying creating some colourful and interesting art for fun while I am at home. 

For inspiration, I looked at ‘Doodle Boy’s’ YouTube channel and Keith Haring, the artist we are focussing on in our Year 4 Art lessons."
