South Hook LNG Competition Inspires Sculpture Workshop for Teachers
An arts workshop aimed at supporting South Hook LNG’s annual calendar competition, has helped inspire schools that may be entering the ‘Recycle a Mascot’ challenge.
Organised and funded by the Arts and Education Network NAWR Cymru, with the support of local Arts Champion Caren Owens and artist Ami Marsden, teachers from schools across Pembrokeshire learned new techniques and explored ideas for how to use recycled materials, creating imaginative 3D masks and sculptures.
“At NAWR we are committed to supporting teachers in developing engaging, creative learning experiences through the arts” commented Caren.
“The 2017 South Hook LNG competition provides schools with an opportunity to develop a multi layered learning experience, with a creative end product. Working in collaboration with South Hook LNG and artist Ami Marsden, NAWR has been able to provide a creative boost for teachers approaching the mascot challenge” she said.
With the opportunity for twelve local schools to win a prize of £1,000, entries for the ‘Recycle a Mascot’ competition should be submitted to South Hook LNG no later than Friday 3rd November. Each of the winning schools will feature in the Company’s 2018 calendar. Full details are available at www.southhooklng.com
