This 30-minute session will include a make-along creative workshop supporting primary teachers to use The Wild Escape resources. It will also explore how primary art teachers can get involved with this new project that links museums and schools in a celebration of UK wildlife and creativity.
What is The Wild Escape? A major new project uniting 100s of museums and schools in a celebration of UK wildlife and creativity is coming to a museum near you! From Jan-Jul 2023, The Wild Escape invites primary school children (ages 7-11) to find a favourite UK animal in their local museum and create an artwork imagining its ‘escape’ back to its natural habitat. The pictures and stories children create will be brought together in a collective work of art that imagines a better future for the wildlife on our doorstep, launched online and in museums on Earth Day 2023.
