Antrobus children create beautiful prayer art
SCHOOLCHILDREN have helped to create a giant piece of prayer art, thanks to the help of local artist Alice Buckley.
Antrobus St Mark’s CE Primary School pupils spent the day working with Alice, who helped them to create a striking new prayer focus for their school hall.
During the day, organised by religious education coordinator Mrs Jones, each child had the opportunity to create an individual piece of artwork, which was then collated and added to the huge canvas.
Children designed leaves, flowers and fish from fabric, sewing and sticking it all to create an individual piece of work.
Some children even went foraging in the school’s woodland area to collect leaves and twigs, which they then wove together to make the trunk of their prayer tree.
Pupils are teaches are now looking forward to showcasing their completed prayer canvas to prospective parents on their forthcoming open day.
The Antrobus school, which has strong links with the local parish, also made beautiful crosses which the children carry into collective worship each day.
