The Big Green Draw: Village Saints Arboretum

Tue 03 Nov 13:00-15:00
The Big Green Draw: Village Saints Arboretum A chance for us to celebrate and highlight the importance of our beautiful trees The Village Saints Partnership will be hosting an event for The Big Draw on the afternoon of Tuesday 3rd November.
This year, The Big Green Draw Festival #ClimateOfChange focuses on the relationship between people and our living environments and ecosystems; highlighting how we live today and the ways in which we do and do not harmonise with nature.

Our event is named The Big Green Draw: Village Saints Arboretum. An arboretum is a collection of trees and each class across both St Martin and All Saints will be working collaboratively to create a tree for our arboretum, with each year group focusing on a different skill within drawing. We are lucky to have beautiful outdoor areas at both of our schools and will be celebrating this by using them to inspire our artwork. We also hope to utilise them as much as possible when creating our class artwork (fingers crossed for dry weather)!
Throughout the afternoon we will also be creating tree themed posters for display. The purpose of these is to show appreciation for the trees we have at our schools. We will be thinking about how trees are homes for wildlife and focusing on our responsibility to look after our wildlife and therefore our trees.
We will be working within our class bubbles at all times, following all of our usual covid-19 procedures. We will have the opportunity to share and celebrate the artwork from each class through Class Dojo and by creating an eco-display after the event.
We would like to invite children and adults to get involved with our event at home too! Work together to create tree art using anything that you can find at home or in your garden. Perhaps using fallen leaves and sticks, Lego, vegetable peelings… Get creative! There are lots of ideas online if you need some inspiration. Please share a clear picture of these with us on your child’s Dojo portfolio so that we can celebrate your artwork too. We may even include your artwork in our school displays!
