Flippant Friday….Part Two – More Works of Art


Yesterday whilst we were admiring Sculptures and other works of Art with eye watering price tags (Please see this mornings post  https://davidoakesimages.wordpress.com/2016/10/07/flippant-friday-lets-play-statues/ )

Young Students from our local college were  busy in the woods creating their own autumnal  displays.  The rules are simple use only that which is on the woodland floor no breaking branches, etc. The trees of course can be props and part of the artwork…


But here is the neat twist.  It is not that all the materials are FREE but yesterday was day one! These are by the Art Students…


Today is the bonus part of the scheme when youngster that need help with education and life come along….inspired by these sculptures and then helped and encouraged by the Art Students the youngsters will be able to try out their own ideas and skills.  They also have a day out from school, a play in the woods (which for many will be a first) and a Picnic at lunch time.

No Expensive price tags here….and soon they will be swallowed up by time and weather….but this now annual autumnal event must have a much bigger payback for the kids and students.

    • and it is ‘hands on’ for some of the youngsters for the very first time (if i recall the scheme has been going for about 8years now….some years better than others) 🙂

  2. Wonderful scheme. A lot of kids will always remember such days and I am sure it will help them further in life. Great art as well! 🙂

  3. That is a fantastic idea. I would love to see that in every community. Art takes a back seat in the schools here, and it’s so sad.
