In the Spring Term of 2015 every class from Ratho Primary, one of Jupiter Artland’s local schools, came out to visit Jupiter Artland. Each class engaged with a different workshop, artist and sculpture. To celebrate the collaboration between Ratho Primary and Jupiter Artland a showcase of the children’s work will be held in June 2015.
In 2014 Ratho Primary School approached us wanting their whole school to engage with the Jupiter Artland sculpture collection that they are lucky enough to have right on their doorstep. Working closely with the school we planned a programme of workshops for each class on different artworks.
Each class was designated their own “special sculpture” and the classes were encouraged to build on the activities carried out at Jupiter back in their classroom. In June 2015 we will exhibit the work of the children made at Jupiter Artland and in response to it back at school. Children will get the chance to invite their parents to view their artwork and show them around the artland.
