Young Arts Arriva
A project under the banner of Young Arts Arriva got under way yesterday. The project will see Burnley Central station revitalised.
The children of St Peter’s Church of England Primary School in Burnley had a fantastic first ‘Young Arts Arriva’ project day today.
Along with Community Rail Lancashire, staff of the University of Manchester, artist Alastair Nicholson and the film team at Gravel and Sugar Productions, the children of year 6 travelled to Preston from Burnley Central, and wrote a wide selection of excellent words in languages including English, Scots, Punjabi, Urdu, Hungarian and Mandarin Chinese, to name but a few!
The children are extremely excited to be working in school with their families on Wednesday, and to begin their watercolour abstract artwork next week, ready to ‘Revitalise Burnley Central’!
The children at St Peter’s Church of England Primary School in Burnley had a fantastic day today completing their multi-lingual word banks, art and poetry, focussing on train safety, usage and heritage.
The parents even came into school to assist, and the children are extremely excited for their water-colour art creation days next week! We would like to thank the University of Manchester (Twitter: @mlmanchester) for their hard work, expert planning and invaluable assistance.
