Year 2 have had the wonderful opportunity to take part in the Remaking Beamish Art project. As part of the project, we had Robert from Beamish Museum visit us to teach us all about Norman Cornish and the mining history. The children explored some of Norman’s artwork alongside having a go at sketching and shading. They then had the opportunity to handle and explore some historical objects from the museum relating to the homes and mines found in Cornish’s artwork. We will be visiting Beamish Museum later in the Spring to celebrate the opening of Norman’s replica home on Front Street Terrace. We cannot wait!
