Passion Art

Kate Bottley visits Eyam in Derbyshire to find out how the One Friday Challenge is inspiring people all over the country to find new, imaginative ways to depict the Stations of the Cross. Kate meets water colourist Jenny Hawke, whose abstract work is being showcased all around the village from the park to the bus stop, and finds out about the vision behind her striking images. Kate then meets some eager young artists in Eyam Primary School to see first hand how Jenny's work is inspiring them to paint their own interpretations of Christ's crucifixion and resurrection.
