Sculpted Landscapes

Landscapes 002
Landscapes 012Half Term last week, and building on the current 'landscapes' exhibition in the main gallery, I worked with the 6-9 year olds to create 'Sculpted Landscapes'.

I must say that, the main achievement was a calm, productive day with 30 children using mod roc, plasticine, drawing, painting, wire and tissue paper from 10am - 3pm, and only myself and an assistant. Often we are blessed with a team of amazing volunteers, but sickness and other projects took them elsewhere, and it was a good challenge to confirm that we are not utterly dependent on our volunteers!
