Some senior school students attended 'Alton Live' at Eggar's School last Friday alongside their mainstream Eggars peers. As part of the event, our students were very lucky to meet Tom Yendell, a mouth and foot painting artist. He spent time with the children and talked to them about his life, his disability and his work. They enjoyed a variety of art workshops, including drawing and clay printing. The children produced some fantastic work and all enjoyed the experience of drawing using their own mouths and feet. They really benefitted from this inclusive experience.
