Fenland villagers join community art project organised by teenage artist to relieve lockdown boredom
Aspiring Fenland artist Maggie Powell has galvanised her local village into joining a special lockdown project, which has resulted in an art installation at the local pub.
The 19-year-old who has just completed her level 4 Art Foundation course at Long Road sixth Form College in Cambridge, took to social media to encourage Manea residents to join her community project, which involved participants in creating a tile using any medium they liked.
Maggie explained: "The ‘My Tile’ project was created at the end of March. I was nearing the end of my Level 4 Art Foundation. As a result of the pandemic I was unable to fulfil one element of my course: the live brief.
