‘The Pitman Painters,’ by Lee Hall.

‘The Pitman Painters,’ by Lee Hall.

In their English lessons this term, students in Year 9 have been studying ‘The Pitman Painters,’ by Lee Hall. This play tells the true story of a group of miners in Ashington, Northumberland in the 1930s. Their Art Appreciation class inspired them to become painters themselves and they went on to become celebrated for their works of art depicting the everyday lives of their community.

To develop their understanding of the miners’ experiences, students in Year 9 produced and presented their own works of art, inspired by their daily lives at St. Francis’.  Students rose admirably to the challenge, displaying a wonderful variety of styles and ideas in some interesting and engaging presentations.
