  • Thank you for the invaluable music session you organised ... +

    Thank you for the invaluable music session you organised for the children on Great Western Ward at St Mary's Paddington which my daughter was able to attend. Although my daughter was on the ward for a while her session with Mark and Vanessa from LSO was absolutely wonderful and a real life line for her whilst being so poorly. She has talked of it often and it has provided real inspiration in as much as she is now improvising on our piano at home and I will arrange lessons for her soon. Thank you very much indeed and I sincerely hope you can secure additional funding for further arts and music activities for the children which I feel are so essential for their recovery and well being.

  • Scratch Painting

    ART LW small
    This painting was made by one of our students at Lavender walk using a scratching technique. First the paper was completely covered in coloured wax crayons, then a mixture of Acrylic paint and washing up liquid was applied on top and left to dry. Once the surface was dry the image was scratched into using the blunt end of various sized paintbrushes. I'm sure you will agree, it looks great!
