Haworth Primary School’s Tour de Yorkshire Land Art project shortlisted

 

To celebrate a month since the Tour de Yorkshire reached its sensational conclusion, voting is now open to crown the best piece of land art from this year’s race.

Stage Three of the Tour de Yorkshire 2017 started in Bradford city centre and passed through large parts of the Bradford district on Sunday 30 April 2017.

Hundreds of amazing installations animated this year’s route and two from the Bradford district have made the shortlist and our very own Haworth Primary School is one of them with their ‘Branwell Bronte riding a bicycle’.

The artwork featuring Branwell Bronte riding a bicycle was part of a project celebrating the Tour de Yorkshire at Haworth Primary School. The artwork celebrates 200 years from the birth of painter and writer Branwell Bronte in 1817 the brother to writers Charlotte, Emily and Anne Bronte who lived in and wrote about Haworth.

Pupils and teachers at the school worked with Andrew Wood from Manorlands, Sue Ryder Hospice to create the giant land art in conjunction with Worth Valley Young Farmers Club. The land art is made out of recycled plant pots, carpet and tarpaulin.

The public vote is now open for people to decide their favourite land art from this year’s Tour de Yorkshire and they can do so at letouryorkshire.com/landart

Voting is open until midnight on Tuesday 13 June and the winner will be announced shortly after.

Bingley Grammar School pupils bring art to new paediatric wards

Creative pupils from Bingley Grammar School have recently had their creative designs brought to life to brighten the stay of young hospital patients.

The pupils have worked on mood boards and features for the new paediatric wards and adolescent lounge for Bradford Royal Infirmary’s new wing.

The idea behind the artwork was to help make the young patients feel at home when at the hospital.

The project was open to all year groups and has taken part in a number of workshops creating themes, colour schemes and coming up with innovative ideas which includes a “selfie” wall where patients can post pictures and notes for other young patients to see.
