Castles & Roses (Canal Boat Art)

Date: 28th Oct 2016 @ 1:05am

The children were visited by local artists, arranged by Saltscape and learnt about traditional canal boat paintings of roses and castles that ornate their homes. An understanding of the history of canals and the importance of the transportation of coal and distribution of salt to and from our local mining facilities was also discussed. Artist techniques were demonstrated and the children could then have a go at putting the techniques into practice, producing some gorgeous art work for our year 3/4 corridors.
