Children’s University students get creative

Van Gogh paintings Monday 16 May 2016

Primary school students from Knowsley visited Liverpool Hope for a Van Gogh-themed art day, as part of Children's University.

Liverpool Hope University has been working with Children’s University for more than six years.

The international charity encourages children aged 5-14 to try new experiences, develop new interests and acquire new skills through participation in innovative and creative Learning Activities outside of the school day. 

Last Saturday, second year BA QTS student Harry Jones delivered a session about Van Gogh, and the children were then invited to put their new skills to the test by creating their own art work.

One student said: "It was fun. If I needed help someone would come. I liked that we got to express our feelings".

Many of the children who came will be attending the Children’s University Graduation Ceremonies held in the Summer at Hope Park and the Creative Campus.

Emma Fereday, Undergraduate Recruitment Manager, said: "Our Saturday Sessions are a great way to interact with primary age children, show them the university and give them the opportunity to take part in a fun and interesting session. The Saturday Sessions strengthen our links with Children's University and we're happy to be involved with such a worthwhile project."
