Pupils in Year 5 at St Anne's Primary took part in a project to commemorate the school's 50th anniversary and to enhance a twenty metre section of the perimeter wall of the school yard. The pupils worked with artist Frank Styles, first in a print and collage session to inspire the final design and then to decorate the wall. The wall was split into five sections, each representing a decade of the school's history, and was then decorated by groups of students.
Whitburn Church of England Academy
Artist Gillian McGinley worked alongside eight pupils from Whitburn Academy who each designed and produced a stained glass panel which will be installed in the school's atrium.
September - October 2013
Pupils from Wessington primary took part in an extended learning project at National Glass Centre with artist Effie Burns to design and produce textual glass panels to enhance the existing school building. The aim of the project was to immerse the pupils in a number of different creative processes over a number of weeks. They also spent time dicovering the history and geography of the local are which helped to inspire their work.
