This summer we worked with children and parents from Green Meadow Primary school to create a sculpture garden at the entrance to the school. As a group we started the project with a trip to Birmingham MUseum & Art Gallery and Lickey Hills to view a wide range of sculpture displayed in indoor and outdoor locations.
The research trip got creative juices flowing and children and parents were inspired into producing designs for their Totem Garden. ‘Totem’ means family and the designs represented personal family values and the values of the school as a wider learning community.
This innovative project enabled parents and children to work together with the support of professional artists and sculptors who facilitated the creative process.Watch the slideshow for a flavour of the project and there is a film being published in September which showcases the project in a wider context.
