Under The Sea

Campsie View is a school for children with a range of additional support needs. I have been working with this school for a year to develop the childrens engagement with visual art. This term with have focussed on the “Under the sea”. We have been hugely productive.

We started by exploring light as that was something the children from the last block really enjoyed. We use hair gel and food colouring to create these ocean bags. They were very sensory, the children enjoy how they looked and felt. We then expanded on this light work by making shadow puppets.

We created a coral reef using coffee filters.

The children have also been working with a dancer, a musician and a singer. We were working towards a showcase so we make a backdrop and some costume elements. We also continued to work or exhibition of work.
