Shortstown Primary School would like to commission an artist to work with their e-safety team, a group of 10 Key Stage 2 students who are young leaders in internet safety, to design and paint a mural to help the rest of the school to stay safe online.
You will be an artist who is skilled at creating murals in collaboration with young people. You will be tasked with incorporating the ideas of the e-safety team into a final design that will be an asset to the school. Shortstown Primary would like you to work with the young people to create the design but also for them to be able to help you, alongside their parents to help you with the painting of the artwork to ensure they feel truly engaged in the process.
We anticipate that you will spend half a day with the group of 10 students, fully supported by Shortstown teaching staff, generating ideas, images and key messages for the mural. You will then finalise the design and return to the school to paint the mural. Throughout the course of the day of painting you will be joined by small groups of students and parents for short periods so that they can paint alongside you (and under your direction).
The mural area is a shed in the school grounds and photos and measurements can be provided to you. It may be that the artwork is better created and then attached to the shed, but we would encourage you to talk directly to the school about this. The art work must be robust enough for outdoor display.
Safer Internet Day takes place on Tuesday 6th February 2018. We would like either the classroom based design day or the actual painting to happen on the day itself. Please specify your availability during this day and potential timings when submitting your expression of interest.
Fee: approx. £300 inclusive of travel, VAT and materials. Please specify your full costing with your expression of interest.
Please submit your expression of interest to Eleanorh@bedfordcreativearts.org.uk by 22nd January 2018. This opportunity is only open to providers listed on The Culture Challenge website. Selection and payment will be made directly by the school.
