"Most schools benefit from large pieces of art being hung strategically in and around their premises. When the pupils are directly involved in creating that art, it instils a pride in their surroundings as well as allowing them to discover their power to shape the environment around them. Creative Nature will run workshops with your pupils to produce pieces of artwork along a chosen theme and specifically suited to being fitted in a suitable location. Once created, the work is digitised and the collections are laid out on computer to create large designs which can be hung. The team get the opportunity to see mocked up versions before any last minute changes and the final approval. The print is ordered and the Creative Nature team arrange a time to install the art"
Jennifer Farmer (5-223) has a performance as part of America Dreaming taking place at the Royal Academy on Saturday 22 April 2017.
"Urban dustbowls and Emerald City dreams. Cotton pickers tend a suffocating Mother Earth. White roses carrying white Harlem heels”. In a series of performance provocations to be sketched, Art Macabre and live artist Jennifer Farmer throw down the pitchfork and centre the marginalised narratives of the American landscape. Grab a pencil and let the tableaux inspire your drawings and ignite your imagination."
