I haven’t seen P2 for quite a few weeks as I’ve been hiding behind flowers in hedgerows near Boyle!
Under a veil of Cow Parsley flowers things are obscure and unclear.
In the studio wearing a beekeepers veil, behind a sheet of coloured glass I peer through computer screen, the faces peering back at me are difficult to see clearly. They wonder and ask what do I see and what does it look like……
I have sent a packet of coloured cellophane to P2 and they open it to play with this idea further. Orange is like being inside the sun, someone can only see blue now and somebody else checks out the opacity of another type of paper. One of the students suggests we make view finders like we did before and place the cellophane inside the viewer.
Hiding behind veils of colour its hard to recognize everyone.
Transforming them into wearable veils they are attached to boxes and the children move around the classroom exploring their space in a range of new colours. Moving from the classroom and into the playground, P2 notice how things change colour, that “the orange flowers are all gone green”.
I am sad to say goodbye today, its been brilliant year with this P2………. thank you for all the fun you brought to my studio in Boyle!
