Mary is a visual artist who engages children with their artistic and cultural heritage through fun art programmes and workshops. She uses a broad range of art media and covers diverse themes to inspire and stimulate their ideas and creativity. Working on the chosen theme, the children investigate and experience culture and heritage through clay, model-making, construction, fabric and fibre, drawing, painting, book-making, collage, batik, mosaic, murals and more.
She works collaboratively with the teacher to devise unique projects that link directly to the Visual Art and SESE aspects of the curriculum. Themes and art strands are chosen with the teacher and tailored to the requirements of each class and school. All projects with Mary are designed around the Five-Day series.
Some examples of the types of projects include creating a portrait with fabric and fibre; construction of monastic, Norman or Viking settlements; and learn about wildlife by making birds and animals with clay; painting a mural - indoor or out.
HANDS ON – Colour and Paint is a manual and guide for primary school teachers which Mary has written and is due for publication by Potter's Yard Press in 2017.
