Pupils from a Keighley school teamed up with a former Olympic athlete for a Transatlantic art lesson.

Year nine students from Oakbank School joined in the “virtual” workshop with Roald Bradstock, a veteran of the 1984 Olympic Games, via a Skype computer link to America.

Mr Bradstock, who grew up in Hertfordshire, represented Great Britain in the javelin in the Los Angeles Olympics and is now an artist known as the “Olympic Picasso”.

He is also a Youth Sport Trust ambassador for the Sports College Legacy Programme, which uses the Olympic and Paralympic Games to inspire children.

Oakbank art teacher Graeme Hill said: “This was a perfect opportunity for the students to experience the thought and guidance of a professional artist.”
