Welcome to all Newcastle Bridges School students participating in artist Jane Lee McCracken's North East Wildlife workshops for her Where Did All the Animals Go? (WDATAG?) art and environmental education project in partnership with international wildlife charity Born Free and the project's 2021 exhibition at Great North Museum: Hancock, Newcastle upon Tyne.

Jane is thrilled you are making a drawing for 1st July - 5th September exhibition! Every participating student from the UK, California, Guyana, Malaysia and Kenya will have a drawing displayed as a printed vinyl in a mural designed by Jane in the museum's Living Planet Gallery. Children will be able to visit the museum to see their drawing in the exhibition.

For Bridges students, Jane has created a video presentation with information about the exhibition, vulnerable wildlife and drawing tips. Please watch the video below to help you create your masterpiece! 

You will be supplied with the following equipment:

  • Selection of images of vulnerable North East wildlife to choose to draw

Above all have fun making your drawing and remember, EVERYONE CAN DRAW!
