Journeys – A visual medium toto express feelings,memories and aspirations. This mosaic was created by newly arrived students (from Afghanistan,Vietnam, the Congo, Poland, France, Somalia, Holland and Germany)They all had very little understanding of the english language. The theme was based around journeys made by the young people, depicting experiences from the lives they left behind and new experiences they now enjoy. The work was produced over a period of 10 weeks, all 15 young people involved integrally with the ideas, designs and production of the piece, under the guidance of artist, Claire L.Cotterill in collaboration with with Birmingham Extended Learning services. The aim of the project was to gain self-esteem and encourage confidence in spoken english.
