Since announcing Drayton Park Primary School as the winner of this year’s Terrace Wires in the Community art project the children of Venus class have been brushing up their knowledge of artist, David Batchelor and his use of colour ahead of a very special class this week.
The children were given a one to one lesson with David who told them what it was like to be a practicing artist and the challenges he faces when working with colour.
After an inspiring Q&A and being shown images of Chromolocomotion and several of other works, the class set out to create their own suspended colourful artworks. Using an array of bold colourful materials and with help from David, the children, aged between six and seven years old, created a spectacular selection of work.
Together with David, they titled the finished artworks ‘The terrific, squashed, colourful, diamond handbag pentagon’.
HS1 Ltd will provide a new brief to local schools in 2015 to mark the launch of the third Terrace Wires installation which will be announced soon.
St Pancras International is proud to be the home of some specially commissioned pieces of Art.
