Conceived by, and delivered through, the Walled City Partnership’s innovative education programme, this four-phase project suits the abilities of children at Key Stages 1and 2. Cross curricular, cross community and cross class, the project places our lovely old buildings, their streets, parks and gardens centre stage with children across the city and beyond.
Working with Mary Kerrigan, Walled City Partnership’s architect/educator, Long Tower and Fountain Primary Schools start the ball rolling in October 2012 with ‘Sunshine and Shadows’ designed for six and seven year olds. This focuses on windows and natural light through thinking, looking, chatting, painting, ‘hands on’ drawing, and collage. Future phases of the project include ‘A Room with a View’ for eight year olds, ‘Traces of Spaces’ for nine year olds, and ‘How Special are We?’ designed for 10/11 year olds.
The first ‘Sunshine and Shadows’ workshops form the basis for the creation of an online ‘Seeing Project’ learning resource and archive gallery. This allows children and teachers to showcase, worldwide, the creativity emerging from this exciting and innovative project.
