I was asked to make a sculpture for the entrance, rather than taking an adult perspective, we decided to encourage the children to contribute. Shirley Primary had an art competition the theme "my school". I selected 15 paintings that could be faithfully recreated in concrete. The school board then judged the 6 that would become the concrete pictures.
This was one of 6 artworks commissioned for their front entrance.
They are colourful, fun, and happy hopefully they put everyone in a good mood, they are touched climbed over and are loved.
These pictures also follow the schools motto "reaching for the star in everyone" these show what kids are capable of.
