River of Hope Project - Art project

Recently, Church Langley has had the amazing opportunity to take part in an art project to celebrate The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The Queen has always shown a great love and respect for the natural environment. We hope that this project will encourage young people around the world to think about the importance of safeguarding the future of their own natural environment.’ Thames Festival Trust.

A select group of children from Years 3 - 6 had a fantastic time learning about the impact of river pollution on the natural environment before expressing their understanding through art; they used their artistic skills to create a visual representation of the concept within an outline of a rain drop. The children’s creations have been pieced together on a rainbow sky background symbolising our hope for a world without pollution.  

We are keeping our fingers crossed for our entries to be one of 200 artworks to be printed onto silk flags and be processed as part of The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Pageant. In addition, our entries will be displayed in an online gallery, on the Thames Festival Trust website, hosting all the artworks from around the world.

Below are quotes from some of the children who took part.

‘What an experience! I am pleased to have taken part in this project.’ Olivia

‘I am pleased to have had the opportunity to take part in an art project for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.’ Sienna

‘I enjoyed making the watercolours bold. I hope the Queen likes our artwork.’ Filipe

"I had a great time expressing myself through the theme of river pollution." Troy
