A PRIMARY school hall has undergone a transformation thanks to the creative talents of a local artist.

Lilly Gardner, from Daventry, visits Welton Primary School twice a week to teach pupils art. And after being impressed with her work the school commissioned her to paint a giant picture in the school hall.

School bursar Helen Thompson said: “She has painted the most spectacular artwork in our school hall, it really does look fantastic.

“It’s a fantastic piece of work which covers the whole length of the wall.

“It’s got everything including lots of flowers, nature, countryside and canal boats.

“It also has the school and village landmarks and it’s very colourful.

“It took her weeks to complete and everyone at the school is very impressed by it.

“It’s exactly what we wanted and really brightens up the hall.

“The pupils really enjoy her coming in and get lots from the lessons.”
