Amazing Animals at The Bishops Palace
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been working with staff and volunteers at The Bishops Palace in Wells, Somerset, running a project called Amazing Animals with children from a local school.
The children were a group of ten Year 5’s, a deliberately small group working with a fairly high ratio of adults, in order to give them the time and support that they might benefit from.
We wanted to provide the children with the support and tools necessary to make their own decisions about what they were to create and how, as they drew their inspiration from the natural and historic environment of The Bishops Palace and gardens.
Their finished artwork is now mounted on the walls of the learning room, built as part of the Palace’s HLF funded programme of development, which includes a programme of activities such as community gardening, as well as the creation of new facilities for visitors.
