Friary School Art Project
Pupils at The Friary School in Lichfield have been busy creating interactive artwork for The Fuse Festival. The Friary School has recently adopted a house system which embraces their Lichfield heritage. Pupils in Darwin, Johnson, Garrick and Seward house have created giant spheres for the event which will be placed around the site for visitors to interact with. Our inspiration for the work really has been the Lichfield Fuse Festival itself. The gathering together of people and the joyous atmosphere it creates at the height of our British summer has been represented visually on each sphere. Pupils excitedly considered the event and discussed appropriate visuals and colours. Designs were finalised before pupils applied decoration using acrylic paint. Pupils contributed a significant amount of time to the project regularly working late and through their lunch breaks. The final spheres are a sight to behold especially as a group. They really do reflect our summer in our city. The pupils should be very proud of their efforts. Visitors are encouraged to push and roll and move the work around the site over the weekend. Just please do not sit on them…….
