Out Of This World - Space Project

This February half term we spent 3 mornings working with a great group of children from Arboretum School.
They came to our building in the Arboretum Park to work on space-themed artwork.
Monday we started creating the space station and alien masks

Tuesday, we painted the sides of the space station and also made small rockets 

Wednesday, we put it all together and also made small alien puppets.
The artwork was 'out of this world', what a great project!


Chinese Dragon Head

We had a busy time at St James Juniors in Derby creating a Dragon Head for their Chinese New Year celebrations.

We worked with 25 children over 2 days to create a stunning dragon head breathing red fire and trailing a superb red printed body.

The children loved parading around the school hall. 
Well done and Happy New Year!!

The Year Of The Horse

We spent 2 days working with Sawley Infants on a magnificent horse lantern to celebrate the Chinese New Year.

We even put lights inside to make the horse lantern light up.
We also created mini horse lanterns for the procession at Erewash Festival of Lights in Ilkeston.
