Cube-painting exercise

Children at Raleigh Infants & Nursery School began by showing and discussing their own countryside-related objects, as well as selecting objects from the 'countryside basket'. They also enjoyed studying highly patterned and animal-related objects from rural Papua New Guinea, which led to storytelling in the school's new nature area and other perfomance related activities. The artist initiated a cube-painting exercise, again with storymaking in mind, which was extended in a follow-up visit to coincide with a whole school celebration of dance, song and rural tradition.
