www.wrington.net Wrington Primary School TIMELINE Project Resident Artist:  Julie Kingcott, September 2011 Objective The creation of a colourful set of painted panels to depict a chronological series of historical events to decorate the panel fenced pathway between lower and upper school.   Method The panels were divided between each year group. Each year group then researched a number of periods of history using all means at their disposal, including computers, books and television. The year groups then discussed their findings to develop themes for each panel to represent each point in history. These themes were then painted onto each panel, under the guidance of the resident artist.  When finished the panels were varnished. The panels were then screwed to the existing panel fencing along the walkway between lower school and the top field, in chronological order.   Outcome A series of 14 creative panels representing an historical time line was created by all the students of the school. During the process, various skills were developed, including:   · Team work ; working together · The use of research books, internet and other resources · The use of different art materials and methods · Working alongside a professional artist Photographs 22nd March, 2012 These photographs include 2 pupils from each of the year groups standing next to panels they worked on. The panels are also shown as separate images so the detail can be appreciated. Click thumbnail to enlarge Close-ups of panels
