This week I enjoyed visiting a local primary school to speak to a class of 5 and 6 year olds about my work. They are working on a project to make a rainbow from recycled materials .
Using lots of visual images I gave a (very brief) history of the use of recycled materials in Art (Picasso started it!), spoke about my own work and showed some images of work by other artists making similar work. I also showed some examples of school projects (see the schools page on my website ) to inspire the children with their art project. The class gave me a great welcome and asked lots of intelligent questions before we played a sort of ‘I Spy’ game to find toys in the 3 works I had taken with me.
