Bewdley Primary School worked in conjunction with the West Midlands Safari Park for an exciting mass-participation public art event - Worcester Stands Tall.
Students at Bewdley Primary School received a blank canvas, in the form of a giraffe, from sponsors of the event - West Midlands Safari Park - which they lovingly decorated with designs created by the children. The calf sculptures, created by schools from the surrounding area, will be displayed in the Crowngate Shopping Centre in Worcester for 10 weeks to display the creative talent that Worcestershire has to offer. Meanwhile, the taller sculptures which were decorated by artists, will be displayed around streets and public places as part of a trail in which people may follow.
On the 22nd July there will also be a safari walk to help continue raising funds for St Richard's Hospice.
Children with particular artistic talent collaborated by sharing their ideas to produce a fantastic sculpture, we hope will stand out from the crowd. The final product will be unveiled in July alongside other sculptures with the aim to raise money for the Hospice - BPS's individual sculpture will be returned after the exhibit as a permanent legacy.
We look forward to seeing the results of the children's hard work in July and encourage families to participate and support the cause!
