30 Year 9 pupils from City of London Academy Southwark took part in the project. They enjoyed the experimental nature of the workshop run by artist Lauren Veevers. Pupils were particularly interested by the range of techniques, processes and materials available to them and which introduced them to new ways of producing art, particularly in short timescales. Making the focus of the project very personal added to its appeal. Teachers are keen to see how other curriculum projects can be similarly personal and utilise mixed media.
