Bob and Roberta Smith Art Project (September)
As part of the Bob and Roberta Smith art project, that will be transferring to the Tate in London, schools were asked to submit art work reflecting the impact of Covid 19 on our local community, how people supported each other during the pandemic and the positive aspects of Thamesmead. We are delighted to say a number of our talented children’s artworks are to be included in the project. As Mr and Mrs Hammond were initially involved, they were invited to the open evening, and received many good comments about the art work St.Peter’s school had submitted. Well done to all those who took part.
