The Creative Learning in Schools Team (CAST) have been piloting a project in primary schools in Kintyre, “Take One Picture” installing artworks from the Argyll Collection in six schools to inspire cross curricular creative learning. Pupils and teachers from Carradale, Castlehill, Dalintober, Drumlemble, Gigha and Rhunahaorine Primaries have been working with artists Sian MacQueen, Nicole Heidtke and Stefan Bamberger and dancer Tony Mills to create new work inspired by the artworks, taking part in workshops on conductive printmaking, relief sculpture, dance, digital sculpture, life drawing, shadow puppetry, collage and painting.
CAST are creating a digital resource for the project, full of creative ideas to inspire cross curricular creative learning in all primary schools.
“We were totally inspired by Sian’s creative ideas. The children have talked lots about your visit and have been using great language to describe the sculptures. The children will be telling me where they want this learning to go next.”
