‘Walk of Art’ in Orpington

This week I’ve been at Crofton Infants’ School in Orpington working with Year Two on a project called ‘Walk of Art’. It’s part of Walk to School Month, and is going to result in a textile banner examining why walking to school can be interesting.

The children started off with a walk outside the school exploring and looking for inspiration…

Then explored the idea more through drawing and making a Journey Journal…

and finally planned some shoes and legs on a giant roll of paper before making some fabric versions using sewing for the final piece. I specially like the next drawing which features four types of conker, including the cheese grater which I had never heard of before…
