As Artist in Residence at St Werburghs’s Park Nursery School I helped set up an exhibition to showcase the children’s learning focussing on their work with natural materials and woodwork. The children made two sculptures for the exhibition and I provided workshops during the day.
Sculptor Pete Moorhouse leads creative workshops at the Graduate School of Education Centenary celebrations. Pete Moorhouse with Omar Ahmed (4), Sonny Meadows (5) and Lena Bahab (4) with their workshop creations.
Youngsters from St Werburgh’s Nursery School and Children’s Centre worked with sculptor Pete Moorhouse during the workshop at the school in Clifton. The session was followed by an exhibition of the children’s work to celebrate GSoE’s links with schools and artists.
Dr Frances Giampapa, from GSoE, who has been working with the school during the last three years, said: “This partnership rests on our mutual understanding that diversity matters and that building an inclusive educational community is about drawing from the rich resources that children and their families possess when they enter our schools and classrooms.”
