Nature does it best

This week Megan spent a day at Bellingham Middle School. She gave an artist talk and delivered a workshop entitled ‘Nature does it best’. The entire school had collected twigs, cuttings and natural materials in advance. Megan demonstrated how to join materials and how to add detail using fabric, fleece and wire. The pupils then made decorations and habitats for clay animals they had made. Thanks to Northumbria Fine Art Student Lucy Watkins who assisted as part of her placement with VARC and who took the photographs. Special thanks to all the staff who helped with the planning and the activity on the day.
