This summer we ran a creative workshop at Betty Layward primary school as part of “Pinksie”, a charity that aims to encourage creativity and imagination in children. The theme of the project was Celebrating Diversity and we divised a workshop based on the game Consequences. On a large scale, each child was given a section of the body to illustrate (head, body, legs/tail) and was encouraged to be as imaginative as possible and to experiment with a variety of processes (collage, painting, drawing, printing).
The different sections were put together in different combinations to make life-size characters that become more interesting and unusual through the contrasting combinations. More information on Pinksie can be found here
