I have just completed my last education project for this summer term which was a fantastic photography project at Crowlees J&I School, Mirfield as part of the Kirklees Arts4All Initiative. This was a four day project working with 60 Y5 pupils to create a limited edition hard back book and a limited edition giclee print to be framed and displayed in school. Throughout the project I worked with children to explore their school through the lens of a mobile device, including iPhones, iPods and iPads. In line with my own arts practice I encouraged the children to seek out interesting images by looking very closely at their surroundings and capturing images from angles in which they would not normally see things.
I then worked with the children to process their images on mobiles devices through a range of photography apps.
The children also produced a selection of drawings and pieces of creative writing by using their images as a starting point for stories, poetry and drawing.
I had a wonderful time on this project, the children were great and they produced some amazing work. Here are some of their final images...
