The new exhibition ‘Scapes opened at the weekend at the Shire Hall Gallery, which includes a wonderful collection of digital photography, watercolour painting, leaf designs and a collaborative film piece by pupils at Oakridge Primary School, Stafford.

Children were inspired by a walk through Cannock Chase where they responded creatively to the environment and made close observations through various photographic and film activities.


“I really enjoyed the Cannock Chase trip the most because it was a great opportunity to explore more of the chase and its wildlife. I learnt how to investigate deep into the depths of The Chase.” – Lauren.

“What I enjoyed most was our trip to Cannock Chase, where we examined unusual leaves and twigs and lots of other things. I also learned a lot of things about photography like how the light affects the photo that you are taking and how good the photo looks from lots of different angles” – Hazel

“I really, really want to do this again and I want to do more of this at home!” – Freddie

‘Scapes is on until 8th March 2015
