Building a City

IMG_8191

This project is absolutely incredible. It’s about London, its architecture and how kids see the buildings around them. It ‘s actually a workshop that makes kids become interested in art and architecture, in building and imagining. The Hotel Elephant Gallery in Elephant and Castle hosted this impressive workshop with the artist Reuben Powell. The input and passion coming from both, the gallery and the artist was inspiring.

 

We have been helping for 2 weeks, delivering with other young artists the workshops and helping schools from the area to build a city out of cardboard. The process was very inspiring, working for various sessions with the same kids and having time to teach them and learn from them. Creating and making those 1 meter tall construction from scratch was sometimes a challenge, but we had fun. And that is what this activity was about: enjoying and creating using our skills and transferring them to Art.
