Delamere Forest School: feedback

We’ve just received a thank you card and a wonderful pack of feedback for our recent artist residency, at Forest Delamere School. Some example comments follow:

Philip and Lois came to Delamere and tackled a complex, emotive subject, the stages of genocide, with tact and sensitivity. The pupil’s responses to their excellent leads from this subject matter were imaginative and sometimes emotional. Some of the older pupils responded particularly well producing work they felt ownership towards, revealing part of themselves and their feelings..." Gill Taylor, Art Teacher

I really enjoyed writing the love letters…” Nathan

They were kind and understanding.. it was nice to try something a bit different using new techniques.” Class EG

“…We really liked vandalising the playground with the chalks, and playing around and making a mess with ink and pens. It was actually quite surprising at what turned out as we didn’t expect it to turn out as well as we thought it would do." Class EG

“…We hope you can come back again soon…” Andrew

“…my best bit was drawing and painting ink on coloured paper…” Shoshi

Attending the art session especially set aside helped me develop my knowledge of the holocaust art and poetry.” YSR

“…This was very powerful work and helped me to understand the past in greater detail.” Jack

Phil and I would just like to thank the school again for making us feel so welcome. We hope to see you all again soon.
