Artfull and Activ8 working together at Glenburn Sports College enabled children aged between 5 and 11 years to explore the Olympic values.
The children designed storyboards, with characters and a scenario based on the values, then brought the characters’ to life while learning skills in design, construction and aesthetics.
The children worked with a metal armature that could be moved and shaped to a desired position, they padded the armature with paper and masking tape. The finished structure were then collaged with tissue paper and decorative materials.
The children then designed and made backdrop image’s, then following the original storyboard the characters were placed and photographed and incorporated into the Activ8 comic, with fantastic results.
