An exciting project run by THE BACK gALLErY for LOTS funded by THT community Panel Old Trafford.
The idea came after hearing that the planters that LOTS look after on Prestage Street could do with a bit of paint to brighten them up.
The challenge was for THE BACK gALLErY art club to come up with some ideas for designs by creating a large painting made up from overlapping shapes and lines inspired by plants and human form.
The children worked on ideas…And we finalised some bold panel designs from sections of the large paintings.Colour was an important part…along with bold black outlines.We had great fun painting the boards at ART CLUB, the children choosing whatever colours they liked.A beautiful piece of artwork…available for everyone to see,brightening up the area,and bringing a smile to peoples faces.
We hope you agree that they look much better now.
Why not pop down to Prestage Street to see them for yourself?
