03 Nov Following the pattern
On Monday, Years 5 and 6 produced their prints as part of the Community Art Project with the Peterhouse Technology Group. They have been working with two local artists to produce prints, exploring ideas relating to the commissioned piece from Alison Turnbull. The children explored ideas relating to Alison’s commission; abstraction, colour and movement and took the triangular form as inspiration. The local artists, Lyndall Phelps and Adam Bridgland (who specialises in screen-printing and is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London) guided the children in idea generation, concept development and production of their final images, which look amazing.
The children really enjoyed the project, which took three days to complete. Here are some of their comments; “My favourite bit was taking the photos because I liked looking for shapes.” “I really liked using two colours together in the screen printing.” “I liked making up the patterns.”
