Philip Southcote is ‘a small, nurturing and supportive community of young people with a range of special educational needs including autism, speech and language needs and a range of medical, physical and sensory needs.’
Initially the school had wanted a workshop to help students explore themes around ‘identity’.
Andrea and Sheila having not yet met the students, brainstormed a potential way into the subject and felt that it would be helpful to hang the day on a more tangible theme and that by exploring characteristics, habitats and personalities of animals the notion of ‘identity’ could slip in.
Andrea and Sheila planned a broad range of process based activities on which to build both visual and tactile experiences.
Based on a combination of AccessArt workshops with input from several contributing artists including Susie Olczak, Racheal Causer, Jo Allen and workshops by Paula, Andrea and Sheila carefully structured the day.
