MORE than 250 school pupils have been working together on an exciting art exhibition to help commemorate a century of the National Trust's ownership of Morte Point.
The exhibition of work by Woolacombe Primary School pupils and Ilfracombe Art College students opens at The Mews in Woolacombe Bay Hotel on Friday of next week (November 14) and will be open throughout the weekend for people to enjoy.
The two schools have worked to produce amazing felt work, with pictures produced by each class at Woolacombe, while Year 11 students at Ilfracombe have created 100 individual canvases, one for each year of the trust's stewardship of Morte.
The project is part of the School Arts Partnership supported by Sky Television and the National Trust. Its aim is to link schools from both urban and rural backgrounds to a local National Trust property.

"This project has been a great way to create a legacy of the 100 year anniversary of the gift of Morte Point to the National Trust," said Jonathan Fairhurst, Area Warden for Morte Point and Woolacombe.
"It's amazing how inspired the children have been by the landscape, how well the different age groups have worked together and what high quality art work they have produced. Come and see the variety and quality of the work for yourselves at the The Mews in Woolacombe over the weekend.
