ARTISTIC youngsters in Marsden will be putting their hands to good use.
They’re joining a creative project ahead of Marsden Jazz Festival which has been funded from a grant by the Arts Council.
Fettle Animation, a Marsden-based animation company, will work with festival organisers and children to create abstract animated patterns inspired by jazz musicians.
The results will be on display in shop windows during the music festival, which runs from Friday to Sunday, October 12-14.
Fettle producer Kath Shackleton said: “We’ve put together an eclectic programme of films which show the joy of what can be achieved when animation and jazz come together.
“Children really enjoy getting involved in animation and we love working in schools. It’s magical when children can see their artwork animated and being shown on a giant scale.”
Pupils at Spring Grove Junior and Infant School are involved, along with pupils at Golcar JIN School, Marsden Junior School, Marsden Infants School and Moor End Academy.
