Nikki Godfrey

Corpus Christi School Resident Artist

We are very lucky to have our own school resident artist - Nikki Godfrey. Once a half term Nikki is based in one year group and plans and teaches a whole week of Art. This give us the chance to sketch, paint and make a really big Art project that we can plan, refine and perfect over the course of the week.

We are so lucky to have Nikki as our resident artist, so far this year...
