We are delighted to announce that we have been granted nearly £1000 by the Roseland Festival to fund a new and exciting Art project for The Roseland Academy and partner primaries, due to take place next academic year 2015/16.
While some of the finer details have yet to be finalised, we envisage working with all nine partner primaries in a series of art workshops leading to a public exhibition of the resulting pieces of work in Spring 2016. The theme is “A Sense of Place” to celebrate our beautiful natural surroundings and Cornish heritage. In practical terms we aim to collaborate with a local artist, who will be the lead practitioner for the project, and we also plan to send specialist Roseland staff and some of our secondary students into individual primary schools to work alongside primary staff and pupils.
We are very grateful to our generous sponsors and thrilled that the project will form part of the wider Roseland Festival programme of events which will take place between 23rd April and 7th May 2016, further details to be released soon – watch this space!
