Holy Cross pupils appeal for art materials

Holy Cross pupils are appealing for unwanted art materials to help them take part in a church schools’ art competition.holy-cross-school-logo

The Uckfield Church of England primary school has been asked to take part in the Year of the Bible art challenge.

But, it says that to give the pupils the chance to produce the artwork they are capable of they need your help.

The school is desperately seeking art materials and would appreciate it if any locals or Uckfield businesses with any to spare could donate them for the pupils to use.

This could include large card or paper, paints, brushes, colouring pens. It could be fabric including dress making or furnishing fabrics, even off cuts.

Headteacher Mrs Cathy Dart, said: “We have incredibly creative children in our school, but due to budget constraints we don’t have the necessary resources to enable them all to enter this competition.

“I would really appreciate it if anyone in the area could donate any spare art materials to us. Being the only church school in the town we would really like to be able to enter this competition.

“Anything, even the smallest item you’re not using, could help our children take part and show off their art skills.”

The Year of the Bible art competition is organised by the Diocese of Chichester and is open to all schools from early years to sixth form who come under the diocesan umbrella.

The challenge, which is split into key stage one and key stage two, is for children to create artwork depicting either Bible stories or characters, a favourite verse/passage or the big story of the Bible.

Competition entries can be painted, sculpted, digitally created, made from textiles or ceramics, photographed or even be an art installation.

If you have any spare art materials that you’d like to donate to Holy Cross you can either drop them off at the school or give the school a call on 01825 762336 and someone will collect them. The closing date for the art competition is March 31.
