Over the last few years I have worked with many different schools producing a piece of art with the pupils.
The directive for students to work collaboratively on a unique piece of art for the school place is usually driven by the school as a desire to do something completely different, to celebrate an important date or give the community of students the ability to connect together through the medium of creativity.
It is always a lot of hard work but so very exciting to work on these projects - producing a piece of art that every single child has contributed to, that connects with the school's individual ethics and looks wonderful to boot!
The images above depicts this process, here you can see how each student is given the opportunity to work on the overall project.
This school wanted to create a piece of artwork that incorporated an understanding of mathematical shapes and symmetry - the overall effect using mosaic as a medium was incredibly effective and very beautiful - the school installed the finished work in the school's garden so that it could be admired by all of those children who were involved and in the future inspire and be enjoyed by new students.
I am currently working with a primary school and we are creating the most wonderful tree.
On the tree each child in the school will be represented as each pupil will create a leaf. I will reveal much more about this project as it continues and of course when it is finished in the next few weeks.
If you are a teacher, a student or event a parent who would like to find about more about the kind of work I do with schools then please get in touch with me - I am always excited abut working with children - who never fail to inspire me with their knowledge and ideas.
