Having completed their KS2 SATs, Wilbury Primary School were keen to implement some exciting classes outside the national curriculum, however without a set Art Department and no Art Teacher this was relatively hard to get going!

Fratax is an Italian Caricaturist who was very keen to teach his skill as a Tutorfair volunteer. Over the past four weeks, he has come in for 2 hours after school once a week and taught 20 pupils with a love for Art how to draw faces, cartoons and caricatures...


Fratax (Art Tutor):

‘I love coming to Wilbury on Tuesdays – the kids are so good and so hardworking.’


Mr Lee (Yr 6 teacher at Wilbury Primary School):

‘This is an amazing opportunity for children who would ordinarily not have access to this high quality art tuition’


Catia, Yr 6:        ‘It’s so fun!’


Hanife, Yr 6:     ‘The time goes too quickly!’


Thank you Fratax for the wonderful sessions - we have been doodling cartoon faces in the office!
