School Art Project

Written by  Monday, 21 October 2013 00:00

Pupils from Green Lane Primary School in Barnard Castle were given the opportunity to study nature and local landmarks in order to create clay-fired tiles inspired by Henry Witham. This project was part of the The Witham's Heritage Activities Programme 2012-2014.

Part of the original brief for The Witham's public art commission, stated that the appointed artist had to involve children from a local primary school in some aspects of the design, development or production of the work. Judy Caplin worked with sixteen Year 4 pupils at Green Lane Primary School.

Following the sessions at school, the children then visited Judy’s studio to collect their fired tiles and also to see the sculpture progressing.

The project was documented by photographer Jill Cole and the resulting images and the children’s tiles formed part of a separate temporary exhibition which was on display in the Link Building when The Witham reopened to the public in October 2013.
