Children have a hoot bringing art to book
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.”
