Bowland Revealed – Working with Artists in Schools

October 16, 2014 in Bowland Revealed, Slideshow

Local artists & schools in Bowland have been working together on a Looking Backwards-Looking Forwards Project to Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Forest of Bowland as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty

Our Bowland Revealed Artists in Schools programme proved to be a great success with pupils, teachers and artists!

Four professional artists with strong links to the local area have spent the last few months working with children from local primary and high schools, to design a banner that celebrates the 50th Anniversary of the Forest of Bowland as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

After months of creativity and hard work, the school sessions culminated in a piece of artwork that was photographed and turned into a banner.

The 5 banners have been on display in the Education Room at the Platform Gallery in Clitheroe from 25th-27th November and will tour Bowland AONB as part of the Bowland Revealed celebrations.
