The Beacon School key worker students have been busy in school making wrapped hangings and painting pebbles. The results of their fantastic work can be seen at the front of the main school entrance for all to see and enjoy and forms the beginning of our school Well-being project.
We have all been living in unusual and often challenging circumstances. It has been hard on us all emotionally, physically and mentally. So we would like to challenge every member of the Beacon School community to create a piece of Art at home. On our return to school these pieces of Art will be displayed in groups in different parts of the school environment. The aim of this is commemorate our resilience in coping with what we have been through and to celebrate our returning to school and resuming our lives as a community.
We are asking you to paint and wrap sticks, pebbles and stones, or to create your own weaving, all with materials that you have collected or might be laying around the house.
Most importantly, remember that the art work will deteriorate over time, especially through the winter months. Do not be upset by this as it is purposeful. The slow deterioration of the art work symbolises the transition of us returning to our ‘new’ normal.
Guidance on how to create your art work with be shared with you in the coming weeks. Remember to have fun and get lost in the art making.
