Riverwalk in the Forest

Landscape Patterns - Riverside in the Forest 8th June 2015


Children with profound and multiple learning difficulties from a mixed age group arrived with 3 minibuses from Riverwalk school in the morning, together with 13 children, 8 wheelchairs and 12 support staff.

Looking at patterns on the way, the group settled on the lawn near the pond to take part in art activities which included printing, spattering and foliage prints. Great fun was had by all and a few joined together to create some large canvases.

The afternoon group from Riverwalk with moderate learning difficulties turned up to enjoy a picnic lunch at Brandon Country Park. After a walk through the woods feeling different bark textures and looking for different leaves, the children took part in different art projects depending upon abilities and interests. Some had a giant canvas to themselves to express the colours they could see. Other children created individual canvases while looking closely at insects, leaves, cones and twigs. The work is currently exhibiting at Riverwalk school for parent’s evening and will return to BCP in mid July for exhibition.
