Children from River Mead School and Castle Mead School have worked together with children from Kingdown School in Warminster to create a stellar exhibition at Larkrise School.
The multi sensory art show for people with profound and multiple learning difficulties, the Lunar Fantasy Installation, celebrated the Apollo lunar landings. It took inspiration from artists who exhibit at The New Art Centre, Roche Court in Salisbury.
One of the artists is Becky Churchill, who works with children at all three schools in The Mead Academy Trust as an art specialist. She said: “We just keep uncovering more and more young talent, it is so important that they exhibit their work in this way. It is about breaking down barriers and celebrating what it means to be alive.”
The installation has been on display at Larkrise School over the past week and the school children have enjoyed taking part in exploring life beyond planet earth. The children have taken part in the project as a way of connecting with children at Larkrise School and encouraging them to engage with art and sensory stimulation.
