Young artists have taken part in a special workshop at Barking Riverside.
The pupils from Thames View Junior School, in Bastable Avenue, Barking, worked with artist Laura Iosifescu to produce work inspired by the area’s ecology.
They were taken to the viewing platform and given a tour of the riverside, then painted the scenery onto stones which will be incorporated into the development.
Laura said: “The site has such an interesting landscape, and it was fantastic to see the children being inspired by their surroundings and creating work that reflects the site’s diverse ecology.”
Varsha Patel, Barking Riverside’s events manager, added: “We are extremely proud to showcase our wonderful riverside setting.
“Working with Thames View Junior School has given us a great opportunity to teach the children about the unique environment right on their doorstep.”
