The many visitors we had were very impressed by what they saw and the phrases “Very good” and “Fantastic” were commonly heard. The exhibits prompted discussion about recycling and disposal of rubbish, an issue that is at the forefront of the news at the current time. They greatly appreciated the effort that the children and teachers had put into the work. Many visitors brought younger siblings along to see what their older brothers and sisters had made.
Visitors to the exhibition were very impressed by the work that they saw. Many people came to see the work that their children’s school had made and that of other schools but also many visitors came from the local community so see the talents of our young people.
When the children came to visit with their schools, in addition to contributing to the large piece of ocean themed art, they also had time to look at the work the other schools had made for the exhibition. Some children were fascinated by information which was displayed detailing the length of time it takes for rubbish to be broken down. Other thoughts from the children were that getting involved and making the jellyfish was the best part and they enjoyed seeing what other schools had done. They all greatly enjoyed their visits.
All twelve schools visited the exhibition with small groups of children to contribute to a large piece of art which was produced over the 2 days. An ocean scene was made by using different painting techniques to form the backdrop and by using plastic bottles to make jellyfish for the 3D piece of work.
From the 19th-20th June 2018 we held our annual art exhibition at Guiseley Methodist Church. All the schools belonging to the Trust produced fantastic pieces of art based on the theme “Recycled Art”.
