LONDON INTERNATIONAL GALLERY OF CHILDREN'S ART (LIGCA)
Collaborating with LIGCA on a project on air pollution with schools in London and Delhi.
AIMS of the project: to increase the pupil’s awareness of the causes and effects of air pollution through cross-curricular learning with an emphasis on artistic expression and exploration.
HOW the project run: Schools taking part were invited to research this topic across the curriculum to suit the ages and interests of their pupils. The pupils involved were encouraged to find solutions to reduce air pollution and use the project as a source of discussion and exploration of ideas, with opportunities to Skype pupils in India and for schools in London to collaborate.
In London LIGCA provided a series of art workshops led by Susan Craven and myself, assisting students to help materialise their ideas and in curating the artwork.
THE PROJECT RAN from September to November 2018, on a monthly basis. The children continued their artwork in-between these sessions with the help of their school art teachers.
Outcomes of the project: To exhibit the pupil’s artwork in an exhibition in New Delhi in November 2018, and in London in Spring / Summer 2019.
