Our design has been created by children from across the schools involved with the Chester-Le-Street Learning Alliance. The children took their inspiration from the juxtaposition of natural and man made patterns. As our project involved hundreds of children from across seven primary schools and one secondary academy, we needed a design brief that would allow the children to create their designs individually before coming together into a final piece of art work. This was done by asking the primary school children to complete their designs on semi circular templates which the Year 7 and Year 8 pupils then painted directly onto our Snowdog.
