We spent 3 days at Moor Allerton Preparatory School in West Didsbury to work with every pupil (all 237 of them!) to create work to celebrate their centenary year.
Using elements of the interior and exterior of the school itself, from architecture to floor tiles to the school bell, we made pop art prints onto fabric which as you can see are super!
The younger children explored mono printing, relief printing and lino printing also inspired by these elements which was equally as exciting.
The fabric prints are to be stitched together to create a large scale piece which will not only be on permanent display in school but it will also feature as the backdrop for the schools summer performance at the stockport plaza. The rest of the prints will be exhibited around school with one additional piece in the main reception.
A big thank you to everyone at Moor Allerton who helped make this project possible and to all the parents that came to help too. Everyone including ourselves had a fantastic 3 days.
“The buzz in the art room last week was clearly evident as the children busied themselves in the printing process. There were wows of delight and open mouths as the children’s prints revealed themselves. Sally did a wonderful job at giving all the children the chance to succeed and experiment. Bringing the experts in was a great inspiration for our budding young artists.”
