Having spent a long time working hard on new projects over the Summer, I welcomed the opportunity to do a school visit again last Friday.
I worked with all classes at The Granville School in Sevenoaks on a range of projects from group pop-up books to a large-scale pop-up village. The teachers and children were wonderful and embraced all the challenges with enthusiasm, with proceedings helped along by an extremely dedicated art teacher. The idea of a 3D village was the school’s so I designed a pop-up one, in a book. I arrived with a number of key pieces to construct this and the school supplied the rest. Class 6 created 30 wonderful, highly detailed buildings to fit to the structure.
I wanted everyone to be involved in the day which meant doing quite a few workshops. My aim was to pass on enough knowledge and skills to enable the children to finish in their own time. I look forward to seeing photos of the completed work.
