We LOVE hearing from the schools following our Last Chance to Paint chapters and to see all the art the children are creating.

Lorna Philcock, the head of art and textiles at Great Sankey High School, recently made contact to give us a glimpse of the children’s working process and their thoughts on taking part in Last Chance to Paint.

Our lovely year 8’s have been very busy researching, designing and painting for the online World Gallery exhibition. I’ve attached some of their pieces of work in progress and the final paintings. This has been a fantastic opportunity for our year 8 learners to take part in a global exhibition. Showcasing how powerful creativity can be in highlighting the dangers our planet faces every day by our own actions. Creativity, global community, pride, compassion and education, this project has it all!

 

Great Sankey High School now have a wonderful exhibition of the children’s art on our WorldGallery.online and they sent a few examples of work in progress and then the final pieces. I think that their art is absolutely stunning!

The children made some amazing comments about Last Chance to Paint.
