Watercolours in school


Hugh Templeton and kate Middleton were interviewed in Sir James Ratcliffe’s Ineos magazine where they spoke about the work they promote in Primary schools.


In a world full of challenges, art matters.  Kate Middleton recently visited a primary school in London where she spoke of the importance of encouraging young children to use art and to talk about their feelings.   Hugh Templeton spends hours in the classroom teaching children how to express themselves through watercolours. He recently visited a primary school in his home town of Manchester.
