Damers First School children have produced phenomenal art work as part of Open for Art Fortnight. This work has been inspired by Prince Charles’s book Harmony: A New Way of Looking at Our World. The children worked with recycle sculpture artist Peter Margerum to construct a natural life cycle with minibeasts, pollinators and flowers made from plastics that are hard to recycle. The tree was made from recycled wood. This was funded by The Arts Society Dorset.
