All Saints Primary School, Marple, Summer 2011
The children experimented with painting and collage.
We then cut them all out to create a presentation starting to give them the idea of how the finished piece would look like on the school playground wall.
The children practiced and experimented with a full colour range of chalk pastels
drawing around the wooden circles, creating their characters.
Blending and smudging colours.
We rolled out good quality lining paper and taped it to the floor.
It was a fantastic lesson in freedom of expression and collaborating to create one large work of art.
I was amazed at the result.
There are so many interesting characters in this piece!
The children experimented with the idea of split personalities
with fantastic results!
Wooden circles used for the finished installation are provided by another business also in Goyt Mill.
It is actually their waste product.
They are very happy for us to use it for something productive.
It is a form of upcycling.
It also gives us the incentive to use as many as we can in various art projects especially schools.The wooden circles are great quality and can be used for permanent outdoor installations.
We prep the circles for the children, if we had more time and funding they could also do this part themselves.
Learning all kinds of useful skills.
