Their work culminated in a series of mini exhibitions and projects at Little Ilford School in Browning Road, Manor Park on Thursday (June 26). It was created as part of the Bow Arts Manor Park Consortium project. In the past year, each school has worked with an artist from Bow Arts to deliver a bespoke project for their pupils. These have been varied and have included a ceramics project at Salisbury Primary, a Matisse-inspired Family Learning project at Sheringham Nursery, a willow sculptures project at St Winifride’s Primary and a Saturday Morning Arts Award-accredited project at Little Ilford.

To celebrate the third year of the project, the schools and artists all came together for one day to showcase the work that has been created and the skills they have learnt, through an exhibition and participatory drop in workshops.

Parents and special guests also attended. The schools involved are: Little Ilford School, Essex Primary School, Monega Primary School, Dersingham Primary School, Salisbury Primary School, Sir John Heron Primary School, St Winefride’s Primary School and Sheringham Nursery School.

Lydia Ashman, education projects manager at Bow Arts, said: “It was really rewarding to see to see the fruits of all that work all in one place and for the artists that were involved with the project to see it all showcased.

“It was also really nice to see the children’s work in that context, in front of theirm peers showing off their new skills.”

She said consortium, which is supported by Arts Council England and Newham Council, is hopping to continue its work with schools in the Manor Park area.
