A BIGGER PICTURE

2013-2014

The Art Shed Gallery, Lauriston School, London, UK 

Collaborating with three curators and a school full of children we worked to create a gallery and arts studio in an inner city London school. Through exhibiting the work of artists alongside a studio in which the artists supported the children to produce their own work for exhibition, the project aimed to foster children's abilities to identify and make meaning through the inter-related processes of looking, comprehending and making.

Generously supported by Lauriston School PTA, Christie's Education
