The Children’s Art School, who work with schools to support the development of creative skills and to enrich the curriculum through hands-on exploration and creative learning, has been working with Year 6 pupils from South Crosland Junior School and Brockholes Junior and Infant School to create original portraits.  Using continuous drawing techniques, the school children created portraits of their classmates which will feature at Honley Station.

 

 

The project organised by Penistone Line Community Rail Partnership, was set up to encourage the children take pride in their station in hope that it will help reduce vandalism.

 

As well as producing the artwork, the children were given a lesson on how to be safe around the station and information about using the railway to travel. Honley station has been the subject of safety concerns due to the increase in numbers of children using the single platform station. 

 

Rowena Chantler, Community Rail Officer for the Penistone Line Partnership, said ‘It’s fantastic to see the children engaging and wanting to make a positive impact on a station they regularly use. When travelling on the line you won’t fail to notice the bright and colourful artwork, all thanks to funding from CrossCountry.’
