Pupils at Kirkby on Bain Primary School have been involved in the Woodland Project.

Artist, Christopher Wiles, visited the school recently and worked with all the pupils.

The aim of the project is to engage people from across the county in the creation of a new woodland habitat.

It coincides with a solo exhibition of his photorealist paintings and drawings at the Collection, Lincoln in 2016.

Mr Wiles is working with a number of schools and community groups across Lincolnshire.

Each participant school in the workshop programme will produce a piece of work to be shown during the exhibition.

They will also get the opportunity to plant a tree in March on a 2.5 acre site on the Scrivelsby Estate.

The Woodland Project is part funded by the Arts Council England through the National Lottery.

As part of his visit to Kirkby on Bain, Mr Wiles has created a permanent tree display in the school.

Each child and all member of staff contributed by drawing a picture on a leaf to represent something about themselves.

Headteacher Simon Morley said: “It looks great and I would like to thank Christopher.”

Mr Wiles staged a similar visit to Banovallum School recently as part of the project. Again, students and 
staff created their own ‘tree of life.’
