In November i was once again invited back to Warringa park special school. This is my 3rd project with them. I was very excited to see the development in their skills …. In using the tape and the cane and understanding both what we are making and how to make it….
This time it was a tram ….
The first day 4 classes helped me to build the frame, and the following week another 2 helped my cover it in the paper and then add the drawings. The fabulous art teachers Andrea and Ruth, had worked with their classes to create a number of different styles of drawings and collages to glues on the tram for decoration….
They looked great and I’m sure they were the highlight of the end of year arts show.
In an attempt to catch up with things I did last year before this year kicks off ….
here is the video I finally finished for INTO THE LIGHT – Echoes of Home
INTO THE LIGHT is a community process and event developed using art to explore ongoing recovery issues in the region, break down isolation and build connections. It began in 2011 in response to community needs following the 2009 Black Saturday Bush fires. Locals asked that the project be repeated, to continue a collective reflection, realising that community recovery is an ongoing and evolving process that takes time to unfold.
