  • Per cent for art Aston Village Per Cent for Art Project

    Created 2013-10-02 by maree hensey

    Location: Drogheda - Co. Louth

    Duration: 2013-10-02 to 2014-06-30

Project Outline

Mark and I propose  to create an iconic and contemporary, permanent artwork which:

·         Is informed by the ethos of the school, child centred, co-educational, multi-denominational and democratically run.

·         Symbolically represents Aston Village ETNS its vibrancy, energy and commitment to the values           of creativity, authenticity, diversity and inclusiveness.

·         Represents the concept “ No child an outsider”

·         Is child centred.

·         Has a strong sense of ownership.

·         Is inspired by the concept of discovery.

·         Engages the senses.

·         Provides children of all ages with innovative ways of seeing, hearing, experiencing and thinking           about the world around them.

The external artwork will be a permanent feature, a point of reference, a positive visual marker, a trigger for further activities, and a reminder to the children of Aston Village ETNS the fruits of working together. By involving the children in the development and production of work we hope to bring a sense of ownership to the pieces produced and the resulting art work will become an integral part of Aston Village ETNS identity for the future.
