Big Art in School

Stephen Stockbridge, Robin Stratton (TB-12) and Paul Hughes (TW-40) have set up Creative Nature.

"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"
