Classics Art Project

Local award-winning artist Graham Hodgson has spent a week at Heaton Manor working with students from Ravenswood, Chillingham Road and Heaton Manor to create a mural entitled “Transformation".

Tales from Ovid’s "Metamorphoses”, provided the inspiration for the project, and while all participating students have managed to contribute to the mural itself, the students from the primary schools were also invited to respond to the stories creatively in a variety of other ways including individual works of art, poems and even plays.

The week was a real success and visiting students and staff have clearly appreciated the opportunity to work with such an experienced and talented artist.

Under Graham’s watchful and expert eye, the mural has gradually taken shape ready for the first official viewing by representatives from the participating schools this afternoon.
