Stoughton Infants' School, 
near Guildford

This was carried out during Art Week 
in July 2010.

Janine worked with all 9 classes including nursery through to year 2 (4 - 7 years).
The theme was African plants and animals and the final pieces make a long term display across three large assembly hall windows.  We started with drawing exercises in charcoal and pastel.  Then the youngest children made leaves and the older ones animals, birds and reptiles in wire and wet strength tissue.

Priory School Dorking

This project was completed with the help of pupils in October 2007.

It took 4 weeks

The result is a 2.5M high cement sculpture permanently sited at the front of the school.  The themes came from discussion with pupils about their school and include the cross, the vine, helping hands and structures by Antoni Gaudi.  

There are resin inserts with encapsulated wire symbols in them. A light shines up through the middle of the sculpture.
