School pupils are showcasing their artwork, inspired by an Indian festival.
The GCSE art pupils from Cardinal Allen Catholic High School, Fleetwood, are showing their land art and natural forms work at Fleetwood Library this week.
The work was inspired by the school’s trip to India earlier this year, when youngsters learned about the art created for Durga Puja festival.
Pupils from a school in Calcutta, India, first visited the school on Melbourne Road, Fleetwood, in May, and Cardinal Allen pupils then travelled to the Indian school last month.
During these trips youngsters learned about different art forms together, inspiring the GCSE pupils work for the exhibition.
Art teacher Joanne Duffy said: “What they do for Durga Puja is amazing, they create this whole sculpture.
“Land art is art made out of natural forms and display it outside in response to urbanisation, industrialisation or pollution.
“The pupils did it outside in the yard, using twigs and flowers and leaves, and used coloured powders sent over from India.”
Young artists Kasha Hempton-Thomas, Molly Lever, Holly Wiggans and Joseph Butterworth, all Year 11 pupils, visited the library on North Albert Street to help curate the exhibition.
Fifteen-year-old Molly said: “I feel quite proud it’s on display.
“I like how it was all natural materials and we could do whatever we wanted.”
Ms Duffy added: “I feel really proud of them.
“I think it gave them a bit of ownership of it. I think it was nice to give them a bit of insight into a different art.”
