Shane Record recreates 'Folkestone at Dusk'.

Local artist, Shane Record, delighted Folkestone Primary Academy pupils when he spent a morning at the school on Friday 13th November, recreating his painting entitled ‘Folkestone at Dusk’ while answering pupils’ questions and talking to them about the creative process.

Preceding the visit, children across the school spent time getting to know his work, before voting for their favourite, and which they wanted to see painted from start to finish. Children excitedly gathered in the hall, and were honoured to be able to watch Shane as worked on the 8x6 foot piece.

After the event, Shane commented, “I can’t tell you how much fun I had and how I very much enjoyed your school, its well behaved and engaged pupils, the general atmosphere and the helpful, professional and friendly staff.”

Shane captured children’s attention during the interactive session as his masterpiece evolved before their very eyes! Thank you Shane for a very special morning.
