Where the trees become the canvas and the land the art, Art In The Park will bring together local residents, school children and a professional artist to discover, explore and produce land art in Pickering Park.
Land art is a genre of sculpture that is created in nature using natural materials such as soil, rock, leaves and stones. Using roots to create art, the project will explore Hull’s local roots as well as creating routes through the landscape.
Professional artist Michele Davy will spend two days in three local schools, Ganton School, Bridgeview Whitehouse Sullivan Centre and Christopher Pickering Primary School. Culminating in a two-day festival of land art, an outdoor gallery will showcase the children’s work, there will also be opportunities for visitors to have a go at producing their own land art.
