Long Meadow School

The Movement of the Senses 

1 – 24 June 2012

 

The exhibition in MK Gallery Project Space this June, The Movement of the Senses, presents a range of work created by pupils aged 5-6 years from Long Meadow School in Milton Keynes. 

 

Earlier this year, Long Meadow School pupils visited MK Gallery for a tour of Daria Martin’s exhibition Sensorium Tests, which presented a selection of 16mm films, including a new work revolving around a recently recognised neurological condition called ‘mirror-touch synaesthesia’.  The artwork presented in The Movement of the Senses takes its inspiration from the Daria Martin exhibition themes and content.

 

Working alongside ceramic artist Jonathan Middlemiss, Long Meadow School pupils explored cross-sensory awareness and created beautiful 3D ceramic artwork, some of which was made collaboratively. The children were encouraged to think laterally and to explore their senses in different ways. Cross-curriculum links were made with PE (movement), Science (materials), Maths (shapes) and Literacy (language). 

 

Suki Bhogal, Project Leader at Long Meadow School said: 

‘The Movement of the Senses project has helped children from our school to access the curriculum in a fun and enthusiastic way, and enabled them to enhance their fine motor skills and learn new skills working with clay. We are delighted with the results and proud that the children’s work will be visible in MK Gallery’s Project Space.’
