Primary school pupils' create art exhibition inspired by natural world

A new virtual exhibition of nature inspired art created by primary school pupils in Ballykelly and Ballymoney has gone on display.

 

Part of the ARTbeat and Causeway Creative Trail initiatives, the project saw children from St Finlough’s Primary School and Balnamore Primary School explore the natural environment to find creative inspiration for the Art in Nature exhibition.

 

Staff at Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre worked with the schools virtually to provide ideas about using nature in art, and now they are looking forward to sharing their creations with everyone.

Enjoying the natural world is a great way to keep body and mind healthy, and it’s hoped this initiative will encourage families and schools to explore the great outdoors safely and get creative.

The exhibition will be available online until December 1st 2020.

You can view it and have a go at some nature art activities at home by going to www.roevalleyarts.com/exhibitions/balnamore-and-st-finloughs-primary-schools-art-in-nature-exhibition

 

If you work with a school group and would like to engage in an art project in partnership with Roe Valley Arts and Cultural Centre or Flowerfield Arts Centre please contact esther.alleyne@causewaycoastandglens.gov.uk to find out more.
