August 2015 // St George's Summer School, Gravesend
aim4 worked together with St George’s C of E School in Gravesend to design a bespoke programme of activities covering a range of art forms and practices to run two one-week projects that culminated in the students creating a site-specific art installation on a couple of the school's building inlcuding the Science and Hairdressing blocks.
The aim was for the students to create a high quality inspirational space to be enjoyed by the whole school.
Students developed creative skills in a number of art forms, experimented with new ideas, worked with different text as stimuli, developed individual and team work skills whilst becoming more accustomed with their new school environment.
