Creative talents on Dartmoor


In celebration of Dartmoor National Parks 60th year , children from five Dartmoor Primary schools have combined their creative talents and created our on line 60th Anniversary Schools Exhibition 
A class or classes of children of various ages from five Dartmoor Primary Schools were taken out onto some part of Dartmoor. Their experiences were used to inspire pictures, prints, poetry, stories, maps, models all of which can now be seen on our website.

Much care was taken to get  every child that came out to contribute some thing in spite of their different ages and abilities. The Dartmoor landscape will always be an inspiration for creative work so why not have a look at the way the future generation of local children see it. An example of work accompanies each school below or select the link to see that school’s creative work.
