My young artist friends have been creating some wonderful pieces of art to share.
These self portraits required attention to detail and focus.
Each child's portrait is a masterpiece and a reflection of the wonderful child he/she is.
It is a privilege to spend our day with your children, thank you for entrusting them to us at The Gan.
