    Wire Portraits Workshop

    'Tony has been inspiring the pupils of Portland Place for the last four years. His artist workshops have been based upon the themes of portraiture and assemblage, using an abundance of ideas and all kinds of found objects. His tuition and energy enthuses pupils, to delight in all things creative and gives them the opportunity to explore the avenues of three-dimensional sculpture with an open mind. The workshops enthral pupils of all abilities and confidence is always gained. His slide show instantly captures his audience and informs the spectators. The pupils gain enormous knowledge of the differing art practises and produce work that is original, fun and spontaneous! A wonderful day was had by all!! Thank you Tony.'

    'It was a bonus, not lost upon the school, that the artist's particular talents lay in the area that illuminated the Technology Curriculum. By using a wealth of material (often disparagingly referred to as "junk") as the basis for wonderful creativity, children explored the ideas behind the National Curriculum with insight and enthusiasm; valuing the materials for their quality and potential.

    It was not only in "Technology" that pupils were developing. It was noticeable that the level of language and dialogue being used in the Studio was naturally enabling pupils to use constructions unusual in classroom exchanges. Such syntax as; Supposing...if...then: What about...: We could use...etc., etc. ; proved that inner language (speculation) was active and pupils were growing thereby.'

    'Once again thank you very much for showing the children how to make their Indian pecking bird and spinning bird toys. The workshops provided a fitting end to our multi-cultural week. The children were thrilled with their creations and many parents commented on how much the children enjoyed it. The Year 2 children produced some good recounts based on your workshops for their Key Stage 1 Assessment Tasks.'
