Description

The aim was to celebrate the link with a school in Tanzania and the children created drawings after researching the jungle animals of the country. The overall design was put together by the artist Tamara Froud.

Workshops were set up at the school over 2 days in the summer term and around 80 children aged 7-8 took part in the sessions, learning the basics of mosaic and creating the masterpiece.

The final product was grouted and installed in the playground by the artists. The plants and seating were added to create a special space around this wonderful artwork.
