Manor Park schools put on end-of-year arts show
PUBLISHED: 10:30 11 July 2012
Budding artists at eight Manor Park schools showcased their work at an exhibition at Little Ilford School last week.
Staff and pupils have been in training with Bow Arts since September to learn how to turn their thoughts and ideas into exhibits.
Each school has worked with an artist to come up with a project.
These have included an Olympic themed animation at Dersingham Primary School, while children from Sheringham Nursery creating Damien Hirst-style spinning paintings and mini-beast models.
At Monega Primary School, a group of year 3 and 4 boys in need of help with their literacy worked with a poet to explore their feelings about school.
Rob Smith, from Bow Arts, said: “The hope was to showcase all the work they had done - it was a really good day.
“We had printworks, animations, imagery and all sorts of artwork.”
The Bow Arts scheme will run for another two years.
