ART PROJECT AT GWALIA HOME
A group of Year 4 pupils were fortunate to take part in an exciting art project during the autumn term. Arts Care Gofal Celf based at Carmarthen were responsible for the project and for sponsoring the artist in residence Alan Williams. Firstly, the artist undertook workshops at the school with the children producing exceptional screen prints under his direction.
Later, they worked alongside the artist at the newly opened Gwalia Home in Upper Tumble. The children worked not only with Alan but with the residents of the home to create some screen prints and a display of their art work. An essential element of the project during each of the visits was allowing the children to chat and socialise with the older patients and to provide some musical entertainment.
The experiences gained from taking part in the project were valuable ones for all the pupils and the feedback from all concerned with this successful project was excellent.
