Topsham Primary School was visited by a Devon-based artist who draws her inspiration from classic railway posters.

Becky Bettesworth visited year five and six pupils at the Orchard Way-based primary school to talk about her art.

She told youngsters how she creates her prints and the processes involved.

Becky began creating seaside posters in the style of the 1930s railway art when asked to exhibit at Greenway National Trust in 2013.

Head teacher Sean Millar told the Journal that Becky’s visit to Topsham was a positive experience for all involved, adding: “The children have been studying her work as part of this term’s coastal cross curricular theme.

“They have created their own designs in her style which have been framed for a display to parents.

“Becky was very impressed by the quality of the children’s work.”
