Children’s artwork draws on Tyne Dock’s history

The children from Y5 at St Peter and Paul RC Primary School in Tyne Dock have been working on a project which sees them collaborating with community artist Neil Canavan. Together they are creating artwork to be displayed as house numbers and an entrance feature to our new £4m affordable housing development on the site of the former St Mary’s C of E Primary School on Lord Nelson Street. 

To help the children gather inspiration as they’ve worked on their art, they have had the chance to tour the development site where the houses are being built, as well as visiting the Port of Tyne, Neil’s studio and the Discovery Museum in Newcastle. Ellen Hagan, technical manager with Gus Robinson Developments, who escorted the children on site, said: “It was a pleasure to take the children for a look around the site. They were very inquisitive and very interested in the different build stages they could see on site.”
