I am working with a group of pupils and teachers/TAs from year 4 as part of Making Waves Together ‘Culture Schools’ project at Edward Worlledge Ormiston Academy. The project, themed around ‘Journeys’, takes place over 6 weeks and explores drawing and other creative activities to grow resilience in the pupils.
The sessions include creating drawn maps of their most familiar routes from memory, working into local maps with drawings to add imaginative new landscapes, and taking a pencil on a journey with experimental drawing activities.
Making Waves Together have supported the development of the project. They are a cultural partnership project linking Great Yarmouth, Norfolk and Lowestoft, Suffolk through their shared culture, heritage and assets. It’s made possible through the Great Place Scheme, delivered by Arts Council England, the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic England.
