Contemporary Art Sessions with Primary School Children

by Chantal

Here are a few pictures from the recent sessions I ran for primary school children about installation art and conceptual art. We had great discussions about artworks such as Cornelia Parker’s Dark Matter , Sarah Sze’s magical installations, and what they thought about the ideas behind controvertial works such as Michael Land’s Breakdown. We then worked on our own installation – we talked about what feelings being awarded a “gold star” gave them and then magnified these feelings by obliterating school props with 30,000 gold stickers Yayoi Kusama style!1
