Isle of Wight holiday could feature art unveiling

People taking Isle of Wight holidays this week can attend the unveiling of an art project by the island's students.

Young people who attend Newport's Clatterford Tuition Centre have put together a sculpture from reclaimed and recycled materials that will be available for people taking Isle of Wight holidays to view all summer.

The Wight Dragon will go on display at Bestival in September and will stand at Coppins Bridge roundabout in Newport during the coming months.

It will be officially unveiled on April 28th 2010 before moving on to its home on the roundabout.

The four-and-a-half metre structure depicts a dragon climbing a pole and was created with the hope of inspiring the young people at the Clatterford Tuition Centre to take pride in their local environment.

Pupils worked with Glenn Martin, an artist from the Isle of Wight, during the project.

People taking Isle of Wight holidays this summer who are interested in art will also be able to attend Freshwater Outdoor Arts & Crafts on August 11th 2010. ADNFCR-3083-ID-19741561-ADNFCR
