A NEW art installation made by schoolchildren has been opened alongside Grantham canal at the Dirty Duck pub.

“Woodhenge” is the first in what will be a series of outdoor art pieces which will make up a sculpture trail along the canal and has been created thanks to more than 30 pupils at Belvoir High School.

The next planned installation will be entitled “Belvoir 2012” and will feature the work of primary schoolchildren from schools across Grantham and the surrounding villages.

The project is being run by Belvoir Castle’s artis in residence, Laury Dizengremel.

She said: “I’ve been doing workshops in lots of primary schools in and around Grantham and the children have really enjoyed being involved.”

Belvoir High School is the school most involved with the project and students there will soon be installing a second installation.

Meanwhile, Grantham will soon be welcoming six art students from across the country who will each install one of their own sculptures on the trail. The plan is to have all of the sculptures in the “3Rs: Reclaimed, Recycled, Raw” sculpture trail in place for a grand opening at the end of the month. Photo: Joe Caneen
