Horizontal Stripes

In Oak we have created our own collages in response to the work of Patrick Heron.


Patrick Heron is a British painter and art critic. He was born in Yorkshire but moved to Cornwall when he was five. He was influenced by artists such as Henri Matisse and Paul Cezanne.


Patrick Heron, ‘Horizontal Stripe Painting : November 1957 - January 1958’ 1957–8

Horizontal Stripes: November 1957 – January 1958


At first, the painting Horizontal Stripe Painting : November 1957 – January 1958 might just look like a few strips of colour. But if you look again, we can see a sunset!


We created our own collage based on his work with lines, shapes and colours.



Our school is a thriving Christian community where our children are central to everything that we do. Adults and children enjoy working together to achieve their full potential.
