We are able to work with large groups of children or even whole schools to produce large scale collaborative artwork for permanent display, for example tile mosaics or wood based installations. We would be happy to come in and discuss a tailor made project for your school!
Ormiston Meadows Academy
We worked with each class over the course of a week to produce some large scale collaborative artwork based on famous artists, and each student also created an individual piece of work. Reception, year 1 and year 2 created 5 foot by 6 foot images based on Kandinsky, Picasso and Van Gogh respectively. Year 3 investigated Matisse and year 4 based their work on Hockney, and they produced a joint collaged display. Year 5 and year 6 looked at work by urban artists Vexx and Jon Burgerman and produced their own characters for a large piece of work. The artwork was all displayed for an exhibition at the end of the Arts Week.
Caverstede Nursery School
We had a lovely time with the children at Caverstede Nursery School, creating colourful artwork for permanent display outside each classroom! The Ladybird and Butterfly classes helped to paint plywood shapes using acrylics, which we then decorated using glass tiles. The Buzzy Bees worked on a large scale mosaic, with children taking turns in small groups to help place the tiles using special adhesive. The artwork was finished off and varnished in the Art Stars studio before being installed at the nursery. We think the results look lovely!
Hampton Hargate Primary School
We recently completed a school wide project at Hampton Hargate Primary School, working with each class over five days. We had 270 Key Stage 1 children producing butterflies, and 360 Key Stage 2 children working on plywood circles. A different artist was chosen to inspire each year group. The children worked really hard and the results were fantastic!
John Clare Primary School
We worked with years 1-6 to create this display on the theme of diversity, as part of the school’s Art Week. Each child produced a circle featuring artwork inspired by different artists from around the world. The circles were all unique and diverse, yet came together to form a colourful tree which takes pride of place in the school hall.
St. John’s Church School
Below is an example of a tile mosaic made with all of the students and staff of St. John’s Church School- self portraits creating the rainbow from the school logo, with each year group represented by a different colour.
