School pupils create collage of their Fenland village for arts project

CHILDREN from a Fenland primary school recreated a part of their village using mostly recycled materials in a collage.

Pupils from Payne Primary School were inspired by their village and recreated Parson Drove through a collage made out of mostly recycled materials.

The children making the collage attend a Young Artists Creative Club after-school run by the arts organisation Atelier East.

Professional arts coordinator, Karen Fevyer, who leads the sessions said, “It’s been an absolute pleasure working with this group of Young Artists.

”It’s been great to see them develop their skills and their confidence, as well as make something lovely to share with their fellow pupils”.

The projects aim is to encourage children to look at and enjoy their local environment and to take in what’s around them.

Atelier East are looking to expand the already successful after-school club programme and any Head teacher who is interested should contact Karen Harvey at
