Day centre for the elderly invites school children to share artwork

With the support of Cookham Rise School Community, and art leader Sara O’Mahony, and by invitation of Elizabeth House Day Center, we exhibited the school children’s Art Week project with the local community.

I framed six collaged panels that when viewed in a sequence are the story of the school’s Art Week project. The six framed panels are now used as a learning resource by the school.

Sara and I installed these with displays of the children’s beautifully illustrated picture books. These were hung so that they could be read front to back in sequence.

We also managed to hang sculptures, designs and drawings, prints and frottages, and with permission from parents, we displayed photographs of children wearing their costume creations.

It was heartwarming to be part of a project that socially integrated young and old in the community.
