Art- Swirling Pastel Koru

It’s that time of year again- Art Attack!
Each year my school has two days which we dedicate solely to art projects. The projects are completed by five (I think!) different schools, and the pieces judged to be the best at each school, within each category are then sent on to be displayed and judged at the local A&P show. 262 more words
