The Care Home Offering Art for Everyone!
Over the next few months Barley and Barkway Federation and Margaret House will be working on an art project, using the theme of our villages across the ages they will be asking everyone for drawings and sketches of local scenes that they will combine into a large scale piece of art. This will be displayed between Margaret House and the two school sites to show the connection between them. We would like as many people as possible to be able to contribute towards our finished collage/painting, so if you have any memories of Barley or Barkway you would like to share or would like to get involved and join us at an art session, please let Lea-Ann know.
