Esther Adesigbin, St Patrick’s ‘artist in residence’, works collaboratively with the school to provide a rich and varied art curriculum. Sessions with Esther are hugely fun and dynamic and explore a variety of craft techniques. These sessions encourage children to bring their ideas to life and enhance their creative development and confidence.


On 10 June 2015, pupils, parents and staff of St Patrick’s Catholic Primary School, eagerly gathered in the school hall to view an art exhibition that featured artwork from every child in the school. The purpose of the exhibition was to give every child the opportunity to express themselves through art, and for pupils and teachers to develop their artistic skills and the event was a great success.
