This was a fabulous project to produce two large graphics that would form a permanent display within the school that celebrated the local community.
Firstly I spent a day with two large groups of children and parents photographing the local area and all the places that hold significance for the local community.
Thereafter, the children and their parents took part in a series of workshops exploring digital illustration and design techniques using simple design software. During these workshops they deconstructed the photographic imagery that they had produced and from these elements made a series of fantastic digital graphics.
The photos and graphics that were generated during the project made up an integral part of the final design outcome and were used to create two large images to accommodate two separate alcoves, which are now on permanent display in the school entrance hall.
A fabulous project! A lot of fun was had indeed.
