Arts Award young people take initiative during summer holidays
Young people taking part in the Arts Awards run at Barton upon Humber’s The Ropewalk have taken the initiative for activities during the summer holidays.
On Sunday August 6 those completing their Bronze Awards planned an activity for the annual Barton Town Council’s Picnic in the Park.
As ST-ART project co-ordinator Janine Knight explained: “They decided that this year the activity would be to make a maraca so they created a prototype which they will bring along to Baysgarth Park and then show other young people how to make the rattle.”
Throughout the summer holiday The Ropewalk is hosting a quiz centred on the Sculpture Garden.
“Trina, who is taking her Silver Arts Award, came up with the idea as part of her Arts Leadership project to create a toadstool trail in the garden,” Janine went on.
“She researched how to make the toadstools and led workshops with other young people who helped to make them,” Janine added.
The quiz leaflets, that are available throughout the summer holidays, are available from the Craft Gallery.
