gab and Downsview ‘The Park’ 2012

gab worked with Downsview SEN school on a project encouraging the children to connect with their natural environment. The workshops combined art and nature in an interactive way, so as to engage with and stimulate the children in a creative, inclusive environment.  The workshops looked at different aspects of Hackney Downs Park, exploring textures, colours, shapes and language for park relating objects and images. This led up to sessions in the park where they interacted with the elements they had been exploring in previous weeks through the art based activities.  We played games, mapping and trail activities, with the intention that these experiences would further their connecting with nature and support them in feeling comfortable in a park environment.
