Dec `12 Movement Patterns project

Together with the children from the Montessori school “Het Zeggelt”, I developed an artpiece for the Boddenkamp – neighbourhood in Enschede, the Netherlands.
The big silhouette paintings are going to cover a fence around a construction site  in the town, next year.

A big Thank you to all the helpers and the kids for their great enthousiasm!

(1) Movement workshop: the kids developed interesting body positions and corresponding movement -patterns.

(2) Drawing the various body positions onto big sheets of paper, cutting out the silhouette stencils.

3) With a little (big) help of neighbours and friends we painted 25 wooden boards white in a weekend session at “Tanksstation”, the new culture center in Enschede.
