Whole School Collaborative Art Projects
Working towards our Arts Mark at Dashwood Banbury Academy, we worked with local artist, Emily Cooling, on a whole school project to create a lantern tree to welcome pupils, staff and visitors to our school. Funded by Better Lives Through Culture every pupil contributed to this large-scale awe-inspiring project. The project focused on collaboration to support mental wellbeing and with every child working om the project, a sense of working together was truly embedded. Working with woven willow to produce the structure, we created a lantern style tree. Each pupil in the school also created a leaf for the tree working with a range of colours, paint and pen.
