Pupils at Offwell Primary School linked up with the Thelma Hulbert Gallery to enjoy a fun art session.

Artist and illustrator Robert Mountjoy led an inspirational workshop at Honiton’s Thelma Hulbert Gallery for Offwell Primary School’s beech class. 
Robert explained what is necessary to create an illustrated story book, and the pupils were encouraged to draw their own ‘what happened next’ to his story Bad Company. 
Class teacher Miss Kirkland said the workshop was ‘really fun and inspiring’. Pupils Lila, Jessica and Yasmin also enjoyed being shown round the paintings in the gallery by Mr Mountjoy, who talked about different techniques in the artwork.
