Schools have also been asked to join the programme. Each school has been given their very own owlet to decorate.
Once the owls have been decorated, they will be exhibited across the City, in high profile locations, in Birmingham's ten districts for ten weeks.
The Big Hoot After School Club
The Big Hoot after school club takes place each Thursday . The pupils in the club have all been chosen to complete the Arts Award, which is a nationally recognised qualification. They will help to decorate the owlet to gain the ‘create’ section of their award.
Thursday 12/3/15 Owlet treasure hunt.
The Big Hoot pupils met our owlet tonight! They successfully found him by following clues that had been placed around the school building. After much discussion, the children in the group agreed on three names that they would like to call the owlet:
1. Mr Hoot
3. Big Ben
Thursday 19/3/15 Art Hunt around school
The children in the ‘Big Hoot’ club were given the challenge to find different Art Forms around school. They found lots of different Art Forms such as patterns on the floor, photography in the ICT suite and acting on the school stage. By the end of the session, all pupils realised that art can take place in many different forms.
