Rivers of the World Project

At the end of Module 5, a group of Year 8 Art students took part in the first ‘Rivers of the World’ workshop with Shona, our visiting artist, who has worked with the British Council and The Thames Festival Trust for over 15 years.  As part of the workshop, students made sea creatures from recycled materials focusing on plastic pollution as part of their MYP project where they are looking at the impact of scientific and technological advances on the environment.  Ms Courtley and Shona were extremely impressed with the creativity and enthusiasm shown by all of the students involved. 

The finished artwork (below) includes contributions from all of the students who took part in The Rivers of The World workshop. This will be on display at The National Maritime Museum until the 26th October and the Riverside Walkway by Tate Modern until 30th September.
