Exhibition of primary school printmaking at Clwyd Theatr CymruTuesday, 07 March 2017 22:28
Byd Ni… Our World
9th March – 4th April 2017
I’ve spent the day at Clwyd Theatr Cymru helping to hang the work children have produced during my Flintshire schools residency. I’m really pleased with the show and relieved the work's all up on the walls! The exhibition will open on Thursday 9th March, and is in the Education Gallery on the top floor of the theatre. The schools involved are Ewloe Green Primary (Year 3), Ysgol Trelawnyd (years 5 and 6) and Ysgol Gwynedd, Flint (Year 3). The exhibition will be opened by Councillor Peter Curtis, Chair of Flintshire County Council, and I’m looking forward to seeing the pupils there too. The children have been working on the theme of birds and migration, following visits to the RSPB reserve at Point of Ayr near Talacre in January and February. Significant numbers of some species such as the curlew, pintail, shelduck and black-tailed godwit spend the winter months on the Dee Estuary before returning to Iceland or Scandinavia in the Spring. The pupils made some stunning prints of these birds!
