CHILDREN at a day nursery in Bury St Edmunds have shown themselves to be young artists in the making and have had their artwork displayed on the Royal Academy website.

The children at Springfield Day Nursery have been learning about Degas after nursery co-owner Sarah Orford went to the Royal Academy to see a recent exhibition.

When she came back, the youngsters created a poster inspired by the artist which Sarah sent to the London gallery and it was placed on its website.

Children have been learning about different artists and using them for language and communication skills.

Sarah said: “We were surprised to see it but they do have a lot of children’s art on display there.”

Ella Mills and Eloise Perry were models for the dancers.
