    I think Gaudi should be part of the National Curiculum. He inspired me to try mosaic. Well done for using him to inspire your young artists.

The project was to create a quiet contemplative area in the school garden for children to relax and find a friend if they were lonely or didnt engage with other children. The area previously just had a picnic bench and was uninviting.

Over a period of 6 months Art Start artists worked with 60 year 6 pupils to learn about the work of Antoni Gaudi through small mosaic projects ready to start work on the garden in the summer. The children mosaic’d chimney pots and large sculptures to transform the area.┬áThe school funded the project.

A true labour of love!
