Dean Hole Bicentenary Canvas
Caunton Dean Hole Primary School
Breakfast Club children and those in school helped to paint a large canvas to commemorate the life and times of Dean Hole, whom the school is named after. He was curate and vicar of the local church and later became the Dean of Rochester Cathedral. He was also a keen rose grower and lived at Caunton Manor. A celebration event was held at the manor with a flower festival at the church on the same day. The canvas can now be viewed in the church.
Spiritual Figure
Jesse Gray Primary School
A full day workshop involved children in the making of a large scale figure with a spiritual theme. A costume was created with paint and collage to bring together the children's thoughts on the spiritual side of life. The end result is truly amazing!

Staff from across the school spent three after-school sessions developing their year group displays. Initially, they were shown how to create easy eye-catching displays with practical activities. Then, with their own ideas, the staff developed unique wall displays in the school corridors to encourage all that pass them to take an interest and to see how wonderful the children's work is.
WW1 Commemoration Canvas
Dean Hole C of E Primary School, Caunton
Children from across the school contributed to creating a lasting piece of artwork on a canvas to commemorate 100 years since the end of World War 1. A flag was painted on the background and children also helped make poppies to attach to the edges of the canvas. The names of seven local servicemen were added to honour their lives lost during the war. The picture was displayed in the parish church for a special anniversary service.
Giant Beano Comic at
Jesse Gray Primary School, West Bridgford
Children from all year groups helped to create a giant Beano Comic for their themed arts week. The innovative Arts Co-ordinator had inspired the whole school to come up with many ideas based on the 80th anniversary of The Beano. As an artist I came up with the idea of working with the children during a day workshop to make a larger than life piece of original art. The children were great to work with and the finished result certainly had the wow factor!
Newark Book Festival
Children and families had an amazingly creative day making Peter Pan and Tinkerbell masks in the grounds of Newark Castle. As part of Newark's Book Festival, those that took part could become a character in the enchanted forest.

Art Clubs

Many super creations have been made by children in my art clubs. Their existing talents have been nurtured when sketching, making models and painting.
