Here at Halewood Arts Association we like to get the Junior Artists Club involved in as much as possible and wanted to include them in the whole design process. There where to be three exhibition boards, with a different theme for each one, worms, the soil web of life and recycling. We began by running some workshops with the JAC along these themes and asked them to come up with some drawings we could include within the designs. The JAC never fail to dissapoint and came up with some brilliant designs.
Armed with our designs, we spent a week down at the National Wildflower Centre working on the boards there. It was lovely to create the work in the space and have the public give us feedback along the way.
Sophie still has nightmares of Carole repeatedly singing "There is a worm at the bottom of the garden, and his name is wiggly woo" but the final outcome of the boards, makes the nightmares worth while.
Do you like them? If you have visited the National Wildflower Centre, we would love to know what you think.
