We are starting an art project with the help of an artist: Mrs Helen Evans (one of our parents). The aim is for every child in Key Stage 2 to produce a design inspired by Keith Harring. Everybody's picture will go on display in the school hall. Some of the designs will be chosen and recreated by our 'Gifted and Talented' Art Group on 3 wooden boards. These boards will then go on the wall in our inner courtyard.
Harring liked to work quite quickly using bold lines, patterns and lots of colours. He painted on outside walls, buildings, schools and train stations.
Many of his images and sculptures celebrate love, friendship and happiness. Some of his pictures give out message about life, freedom and peace.
Hopefully the children will come up with designs which reflect school life.
