Artistic students' 3D map of river's journey will be their awards entry
PUPILS at a Dartmouth school are already hard at work to enter next year's Dart Harbour Young Champion Awards.
Year 5 and 6 at Dartmouth Academy have produced pieces of artwork, with the help of director of learning for the arts Nicola Perrott and art teacher Anne-Marie Rowden.
As part of the group's home learning project, their task was to produce a 3D map to represent the river journey and to make a mobile to show river pollution and the effects of it.
Children learned to use techniques such as collage, montage and how to add depth to drawings, adding texturing and tone.

Class teacher Bonnie Chivers said: "I'm really grateful for the all-through approach. It is great to learn from specialist art teachers, for example how to teach children specific art skills, something I'm not always confident to do.
"I'm really proud of the quality of work the pupils have produced and we are all excited about entering a competition."
Dart Harbour's Young Champion Awards aims to inspire young people to use the river and see what an amazing, beautiful and interesting place it is to be.
