I am always in awe of the way children approach these art activities and the results are inspiring as you can see by the pictures below. I took many photos, however unfortunately some are a little blurred...sorry about that. These pics are only just a small selection of the wonderful array of images painted by the students.
I was certainly impressed with the school, it has great facilities and a lovely relaxed atmosphere where everyone is on first name basis (as they always are in Iceland) teachers and students alike. Parents are welcome at anytime and can pop into the classes whenever they wish, even the 14-15 year olds seemed not to mind "Mum" visiting their classes to see what they are learning (pretty sure mine were not so happy for me to be involved at this age but here it does not seem to faze the students). Classes start at 8.10am and finish between 2 and 4pm depending on the age group (the older students stay longer) and on Fridays school finishes at 1pm with breakfast and lunch provided each day for students and staff.
I was made to feel very welcome and I know that I got just as much, if not more from the experience than they did.
