Chil­dren have a hoot bring­ing art to book

Macclesfield Express - - FRONT PAGE -

YOUNG artists have cu­rated their own ex­hi­bi­tion based on one of their favourite books.

Chil­dren at Rainow pre-school cre­ated their mas­ter­pieces af­ter tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from Martin Wadell’s book Owl Ba­bies.

And an ex­hi­bi­tion of all their art­work will be on dis­play for all to see at Tegg’s Nose Coun­try Park un­til March 1.

Kathy Lewis, from the pre-school, said: “All the chil­dren have used a num­ber of skills in­clud­ing cut­ting, paint­ing and writ­ing as well as ex­per­i­ment­ing with dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als and tex­tures to make the art work that you will see.

“They had the chance to be bud­ding ac­tors when act­ing out the book to their friends and even made edi­ble owls us­ing bread and fruit.

“The chil­dren looked at dif­fer­ent shapes and how they could be used to cre­ate their owls.

“They ob­vi­ously had to get messy, mak­ing hand prints and foot prints to use as the leaves on dis­play.

“The chil­dren had great fun cre­at­ing. We hope you can take the time to go and see how Sarah, Percy, Bill and Mummy Owl have been brought to life.”
