Primary

I work with primary children over a series of workshops to design their own permanent artwork for their school. The resulting artworks can make for a striking addition to the school environment. See below for more details.

I also work with schools to allow pupils be involved in local public art projects. Public Art commissioners are often keen to have an element of community involvement in these projects and this can provide a rich learning opportunity for pupils.

School workshops are also provided on a variey of themes. See below for details.

From beginning to end Pete worked with the children’s ideas – guiding and encouraging them, suggesting alternative ways of developing the plans and sketches – but he never took control away from the children. The pupils were enthused, motivated and inspired and the finished product is a stunning addition to the school environment and, judging by the praise and positive comment we have received from local people, something that enhances the local community as well.

We feel very proud of the work that the children did with Pete and believe that the pupils were able to share in something very special working alongside him. The process and the end product were both of the highest standard – a testament to the approach Pete takes in his work.

I would whole heartedly recommend Pete to work with groups of school children – he shows professionalism, humour, empathy, understanding, warmth and a commitment to producing high quality work alongside children.
