Last week I visited City Academy in Bristol working with year 7 & 8 students on their enrichment day. I found this day most rewarding, as working with children is always exciting and fun filled.
The first workshop was creating tiled murals for their sports hall with the theme 2012 Olympic Figures. The materials used where wood tiles and acrylic paint.
The afternoon workshop was Willow Garden Figures where groups of the students were creating Olympic figures to be placed around their pond area. The workshop was very labor intensive but I was certainly impressed by the patience and ability of all students. The completed figures are brilliant!!
