Brampton Cortonwood Infant School, Persistence Works and Creative Partnerships BDR
(February - July 2005)
Our aims were to support teachers in opening up creative thinking in the classroom whilst working experimentally across the curriculum. Together with two teachers and two placement artists I worked with a group of eleven Yr 1 children to transform the spare classroom into a garden through sculpture, sound and image.
Throughout the residency I worked with selected artworks from the articulate mobile resource space in order to stimulate critical discussion and practical activities. After the project finished I was invited back by the school and Creative Partnerships BDR to support the teachers in planning a more creative curriculum.
What if... was included as a case study in AUTONOMY?! Creative Thinking and Learning. This publication was published by in conjunction with Benedict Philip's residency by Yorkshire ArtSpace Society, ISB0-7287-1148-6.k
