Walker Morris Charity Calendar Competition Winners' Trip to Wessenden Moor
On the 7th May 2014, Mya French, Zara Shabir and Lauren Wray, our winners of the calendar competition, along with the winners from the other schools, helped to launch the first metal frame for the 'Framing the Landscape' project on Wessenden Moor, Holmfirth. The children were joined by the internationally renowned Yorkshire artist, Ashley Jackson, who, together with Walker Morris and the National Trust, have engineered this fantastic art exhibition.
The children were also lucky enough to have an arts masterclass with Ashley Jackson himself, where they were given a unique opportunity to learn how he views and paints the landscape and then have a go at their own masterpiece. Each child was also presented with a signed copy of his book as a gift from Ashley and his daughter, Claudia, at the end of the day.
The children had an absolutely fantastic day and we would like to send a huge THANK YOU to Walker Morris, because without them, this wouldn't have taken place.
