CHILDREN from three Fenland schools have enjoyed working on a creative art project in conjunction with the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds.
Inspired by local birds and their habitats they have created some fantastic pieces of art using mostly recycled materials.
The children, who are from Friday Bridge School, Westwood School, March, and Wisbech St Mary School have been working with artists Karen Harvey and Karen Fevyer at the Young Artists after-school sessions run by Atelier East.
The project encouraged the children to look at and enjoy the natural world around them and produce art that reflected the diversity of local bird life and much more.

Amberlee Foote, the Youth and Education liaison from the RSPB said: "It really is great to hear when young people are learning about the world around them".
The RSPB also provided informative posters and booklets for the children, containing advice on identifying the birds that thrive in our local landscape, where to find them, and how to care for the environment.

The Young Artists created many wonderful artworks from nests, bird houses and bird feeders to paintings, collages and jewellery. They sculpted clay birds, produced some thoughtful sketches and one of the Young Artists Laura even made bird inspired food in the form of nest cakes complete with eggs and worms which she shared with the whole class!
