If you were around Whitley Bay in the October half term you may have seen me working with children under 13 to produce a large group artwork based around the theme ‘Whitley Bay  Rocks’. Inspired by our coastal habitat we produced a range of sea creature collages and a large banner.

Some Statistics

  • Approximately 104 children between the ages of 2 and 11 helped… not including repeat visitors of which there where quite a few!
When you add the grown ups in I think I must have said hello to at least another 70/80 people… and that’s not counting the people who just had a quick look around, or the ones who couldn’t be tempted in despite my mad waving!
  • We made over 30 artworks… and myself and a little boys mum calculated there are approximately 700 squares per artwork not bad!

When Can I See the work?

On Wednesday 16th November I am going to mount the exhibition in the former x-catalog shop in Park View Shopping Centre in Whitley Bay North Tyneside. Hopefully the artwork going to be displayed until the end of November.

I will post images of the finished outcome on here for anyone who cannot make it along to Whitley Bay.
