I'm working with each class in the school, each one doing a different section of a project which will come together to create a large pieces of art to decorate a section of fencing in the school.

Fence Project

The Newtown fence project started yesterday afternoon and class 6 and I had a great afternoon. 
Students worked really hard and were perfectly behaved. 

I'm working with each class in school to produce work,
 from mosaic to insects and flowers made by recycling plastic bottles. 

The project will be running over several weeks so I will keep posting updates as we progress.

Window project at Newtown Primary

As mentioned in previous posts, I've been working on a window project at Newtown Primary School. I was approached  by the Head after delivering After School Clubs at the school, with a request to refresh the reception door windows into the school.

Originally, the window had the school shield painted on by a previous student at the school, but over the years this had suffered damage due to some vandalism. The request  from the Head was for a welcome sign for visitors coming into the school. 

After a couple of sketches this is what I came up with.
 Each character is unique, dressed in the school uniform with the Head.
Photographs show the different stages of how the work progressed.

The original window design of the school shield which over the
years had suffered some vandalism.

Once the widows had been cleaned and degreased I
layout the templates to for each window.

Once I was happy with the layout, I then drew the outlines
and began to fill in  the colour.

Filling in more of the colour for the school uniforms

Skin tone and hair colour

The school shield is made up from the four school houses below.





    Initially this window had a "No Smoking" sign in the bottom left hand corner.
