MAP update part two : the outreach

The Momentary Art Project were awarded a grant from Your Wirral last year and with support from United Utilities and Mount Primary school have been working with artist Nicola McTaggart of Tag Arts to create artwork for the Wallasey Storm Tanks based on Bathing through the Ages in New Brighton.

Initially the year four class at Mount in Liscard, after the introduction by Alison of MAP and Nicola of TAG decorated the cover of the scrap book Nicola had prepared and started to gather information, they were further assisted by Liz of MAP.

This was followed a week later by looking at fashions for bathing through the ages and a little introduction to art deco styles from Jean and Mike from MAP. Nicola explained about the colour wheel.

This week, the young artists will be working on canvases that will go on display in the MAP unit at Marine Point to coincide with the visit of the Cunard Liners in May.
