‘Meet the Bowdleflodes’ Children’s Art Exhibition collaborate with Arundel Museum for their Get Creative Week. Thirty-two children’s artworks created doing The Bowdleflodes Wildlife Project from local schools will be exhibited during half term from 26 Oct – 3 Nov 2019.
Endorsed by Arts Council England as an Artsmark Partner, The Bowdleflodes Wildlife Project is a free educational activity which teaches children about the care of endangered species and conservation using the visual arts.
Head Teacher of Crofton Anne Dale Junior School, Mrs. Hoebee says, “The concept of the Bowdleflodes Wildlife Project allowed us to make meaningful links between art and science and gave the children a real purpose for their learning about classification, while raising the profile of endangered species. By asking the children to create their own unique animal, we could assess their scientific understanding in an exciting and creative way. The children were truly inspired once they knew their designs were going to be published online; it really added an extra dimension to the task they were given and we were thrilled with the quality of the children’s work.”
The Bowdleflodes believe cultivating an appreciation of nature in the next generation is fundamental in safeguarding wildlife and the environment. As well as this, a creative classroom transforms the way students acquire education and plays a key role in their emotional development.
To launch the exhibition there will be a story telling where visitors can meet the author of the books from which The Bowdleflodes Wildlife Project was developed.
Join us for story time on Saturday 26th October when children’s author, Neil Lawson Baker and creator of The Bowdleflodes, will be reading his first book, ‘Tea with the Queen’ at 2.30pm with complimentary tea and cup-cakes.
Saturday 26th October – Sunday 3rd November 2019
