Children create their own masterpiece...

As part of the VIEW exhibition of paintings being held at the Manor House, Honey Hill, Bury St Edmunds during April, children from local schools are creating 4 large canvasses.

 

The children from Howard Middle and St Louis Catholic Middle schools will visit the exhibition at the Manor House and then work on the canvasses at the Discovery Centre at St Edmundsbury Cathedral.

 

Whilst visiting the exhibition the children will take their inspiration from the work of Bury St Edmunds artist Mary Beale, whose paintings form the major part of the Manor House exhibition. Then back at the Cathedral’s Discovery Centre, using the style of American artist Chuck Close, each child will contribute a small square of colour which will build up the whole image on one of the four large canvasses.

 

School workshops take place on Thursday 16, Tuesday 21 and Thursday 23 April. ‘It is a privilege to bring together local schools and this prestigious event in the town,’ comments Helen Woodroffe, Children’s Education Officer at St Edmundsbury Cathedral, who has co-ordinated the workshops. ‘The children will be creating their own artistic legacy of this event, which we hope they will find inspiring.’

 

Teachers at Howard Middle and St Louis Catholic Middle Schools have been instrumental in the development of this project. Each school will keep one of the canvasses as a memento of the event.
