HAST Art Exhibition, 2-9 July at Poplars

Visit the Learning Zone at Poplars Garden Centre, Toddington, this week for the HAST Art Exhibition.  The HAST schools were given the theme "Man Made" and have come up with some wonderful interpretations.

Toddington St George chose to mark the Queen's 90th birthday, and recycled tin cans, bottle tops, old CDs to create sculptures of the Queen and Prince Philip in a garden of flowers and minibeasts.




Chalton Lower School imagined aliens encountering Tim Peake on the International Space Station:




Greenfield & Pulloxhill and Eversholt schools chose to focus on Rio di Janeiro, home of carnival and this year's Olympic games:



Children from Silsoe, Ramsey Manor, Greenfield & Pulloxhill, Eversholt and Parkfields used a variety of man-made materials to create robots and other creatures:



While Harlington & Sundon looked back at ancient man-made structures and built a clay model of the Colosseum in Rome:


And Westoning Lower created a wonderful new range of paint colours for you to choose from - Beans on Toast Orange was one of my favourites!


Arnold Academy gave us a reminder of the damage that our man-made products can do to the environment:



Harlington Upper and Parkfields looked at food and drink:



Those clay biscuits look good enough to eat!


Well done to all the children and staff at the various schools for a superb exhibition, and special thanks to Mrs Horn at Parkfields for co-ordinating it all.

To end the exhibition, there is a Family Art Activity Day on Saturday 9 July, so do come along and be inspired!
