Children across Norfolk are preparing to get their hands dirty as they decorate their own models as part of the GoGoHares charity art trail.
A model leveret visited Parkside School in Norwich, which is one of the 150 clubs or schools which have requested a baby hare sculpture to decorate themselves.
Pre-printed baby hare Busty visited the pupils at the school for children with complex needs, to give them some inspiration for what their own creation could look like.
In the next few weeks, all the other leveret models will be delivered to youth organisations to be designed, before they're borrowed to be displayed around Norwich in a mini GoGo trail.
Peter Marron, the co-ordinator for the GoGoCreate project, said: 'It is great to have the involvement from so many young people across Norfolk and I can't wait to see the creative flair and diversity of designs.'

She said: 'GoGoCreate is designed to give its participants a voice through art.
'Learning outcomes demonstrated in the classroom, at home and in the community, and finally visualised on the sculpture will provide a unique insight into the aspirations, hopes, dreams and fears of future generations in Norfolk. It's a fantastic opportunity and showcase for all involved.'
Parkside School has been involved in all three trails with Break and cannot wait to get involved with project.
Artist and member of staff at the school, Hilary Sanderson, has already started work on a large hare for the GoGoHare trail which will go live on 24 June until September 8, with a parade of all the hares at the Forum, October 7 to 10, with an auction in aid of Break on October 11.
The leveret sculptures, designed by the children of Norfolk, will be on its own trail around Norwich from July 2 to September 2.
