Lets Colour Global Arts Project

Lets Colour In Progress 2

Last year, as part of the Bronze Arts Award, students from Chantry and Newminster in Year 8 have been working collaboratively to create 4 large murals to go up in the school grounds. Dulux have funded the project through Groundwork North East.

Arts Award




Each board represents a spiritual, moral, social, and cultural theme. The students developed their ideas together and used the Dulux weathershield paints with imagination.

The current Arts Award group are busy designing boards for Chantry, using different interpretations of SMSC:

unnamed (5)Cultural – ‘My design represents different countries and cultures interacting in a modern, technological world’ Emma Loughnane, Chantry

Moral – ‘I was inspired by Michelangelo’s hands for my own design. I have used lightening to show the connection between people’ Kate Seymour, Chantry
