CORONAVIRUS has not stopped talented pupils from honing their artistic skills in lockdown.

Pupils at Springburn Academy are using their time in lockdown to create beautiful portraits, to keep their painting skills up to scratch as schools across the country have been closed to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The art department at the North Glasgow school is posting pictures sent by the artistic children on its social media accounts to share their pupils' talents.

Teachers at the school have created Twitter and Instagram accounts to keep in touch with pupils and to post their creations while schools remain shut until further notice.
