Schools across Britain are reducing arts education resulting in students not being aware of, or exploring, creative process and opportunities. Primary Shapes sought to address this by creating a community focused, cross-curriculum, design workshops that challenged students learning. Students first took part in our interactive classroom sessions, they learned to question what is design and what it can be used for. Then applying skills taught in the morning session they worked to create visual outcomes based on their community as part of a design process in a large group workshop. This in turn went onto inform the construction of a mural across their playground. It was both designed and installed by the students who demonstrated excellent critical thinking and design decisions. The project brought to life their creative ideas. The final mural showed what this group of students felt represented them and their community in the winter of 2018.
