Visitors to an arts event hosted by three primary schools were greeted by a rainbow of colour. 

Youngsters from Nelson Academy, Southery Academy and Emneth Academy, all part of the Eastern Multi Academy Trust, got together for the Open Art Studio at Downham Market Town Hall last Friday and Saturday.

The theme was A Colourful Journey and each year group was given a colour on which to base their work. As well as the art display there were also dance performances.

Gill Sekatawa, arts lead at Nelson Academy, said: “It was a huge success. It was nice that all the work from the different schools fitted and flowed – it was like a rainbow as you walked around the room and people said it was calming.”
