Art Panel Workshops
Over 150 young people rolled up their sleeves and used their creative skills to paint 5 murals on panels. At sessions held at Crayford Library, St Paulinus CE Primary School; St Josephs RC Primary School, Crayford Temple Grove Primary School and Shenstone School children worked on their individual panels, with Artist Jonathan Boast who had carefully considered important aspects of Crayford’s history in his initial design.
As the children painted the canvases they questioned the artist about the elements included in the design and in taking ownership of their education began to understand and contemplate the significance of Crayford’s important role in the early history of flight. Each session took a day to complete their artwork with the artist mentoring them in professional materials, methods and processes.
Jonathan Boast is a British contemporary artist and Learning Mentor who has worked on many community and educational projects across the UK whilst continuing to exhibit internationally.
