Inspired by drawings and paintings by Norman Cornish this activity will deliver Part A Discover and Part B Find Out of the Arts Award Discover Level.
The children will record the differing art forms exhibited throughout the pit cottages. They will gain an understanding of the way of life of the miner and then explore his art. Children will then sketch everyday life in the same style as Norman Cornish. Completed log-books including Part C Sharing sent back to the Museum will result in certificates for the children.
