Achaleven and Dunbeg

Good Monday morning its me, Michelle. What better place to start the week than Achaleven Primary? Down through the old school and out in the yard is a little cabin for the older children. Their view over Loch Etive is a well kept secret that, through their stunning observational drawings, they are about to share with the world.

After a fabulous morning of drawing exercises and lots of fun drawing classmates using the wrong hand, the group produced a superb array of postcards. I just adore this picture of Connel bridge with a pheasant in the foreground.

Only a few minutes down the road from Achaleven is the lovely school at Dunbeg. The afternoon had erupted into rays of sunshine, so our lovely warm classroom became a hive of activity.
The postcards from Dunbeg were inspired by not only the surroundings but by the people, as the postcard above testifies. And isn't this a marvellous dappled horse, complete with tartened and bearded rider?
