St Oswald’s Children’s Hospice and Wild in Art are inviting schools from Tyne and Wear, County Durham and Northumberland to be inspired, be creative and be part of it by taking part in Great North Snowdogs. This exciting mass-participation art event will be on display throughout Autumn and Winter 2016/17.


Little Snowdog sculptures are available for schools to create their own designs, which will be displayed in litters across the town at the same time as the large sculpture trail.


The high quality fibreglass sculptures are accompanied by a detailed education pack full of creative ideas and resources with clear educational outcomes. The pack is mapped to the national curriculum and also to the nationally recognised Arts Award.  The first 30 schools to sign up will receive Arts Award training, delivered by Culture Bridge, for one nominated staff member.


The packs can inspire students to get involved with whole-school activity, support and encourage health and wellbeing initiatives in schools and offer ideas for fundraising activities so that young people can contribute to raising much-needed funds for St Oswald’s Hospice.


There will be downloadable trail maps and a dedicated Great North Snowdogs app so that young people can explore their local surroundings and its heritage and along with their families and classmates, become tourists in their own city.


Download our Education Pack for more information or if you would like us to post one to you please call 0191 246 9123 ext 379 or email schools@greatnorthsnowdogs.co.uk
