A few members of year 4 and 5 have spent many weeks on a special project with Alice and Mandy. They have designed and printed posters to illustrate something very close to all of our hearts – articles from the UN Charter on the Rights of the Child. They made their own stencils, cutting carefully with paper knives and using sponges to apply flat colour. They were required to use a limited colour palette and simplify the shapes to give maximum impact in their posters.
All their hard work has really paid off and the posters are visually very strong and dynamic. They have now been framed and hung alongside their initial drawing for the design and the article that they illustrated.
Find them up the brown-tiled staircase!
