Students from Greenfield Community College have been part of a valuable project supported by County Durham Community Foundation and Durham County Council Arts Team.

The project has enabled students to engage with their environment through creativity and take time to think about their recent experiences and the impact of Covid 19.

Led by Greenfield Arts, the project has engaged artist Paul Theo Murray to work alongside Year 10 3D design students to produce artwork that reflects upon their thoughts for the past, present and future, using the environment as a metaphor for exploring their ideas and feelings.

The project is inspired by Finders, Seekers, a recent exhibition at Greenfield Arts by artist Bethan Maddocks, and students are creating thought provoking and stimulating artwork that they are developing to share with their peers to reflect and support positivity at this time. Workshops have included cyanotype, printmaking, bookbinding and seed bombs.

“These creative, artist led workshops are a fabulous opportunity for young people to explore ideas and express their feelings. The conversations and artwork will shape a resource that will encourage another 1000 young people to enjoy arts and creativity and help better understand themselves and the world around them” said Katy Milne, Creative Director at Greenfield Arts.

Greenfield Community College are committed to supporting their students to reach their potential. The school promotes an inclusive curriculum encouraging students to work together to realise an outstanding learning experience.
