Seven full-colour A4 posters of works by Cornish artist Kate Neal - one for each 'day' of the Genesis creation story. 24pp teacher's booklet written by Pamela Draycott and Rachel Barker provides a wide range of practical ideas for using the prints with the whole class, groups or individuals.
A fascinating resource for exploring creation stories, harvest, symbolism, science & religion and meaning-making. Can be used for artistic responses, reflective thinking and classroom assemblies. The pack is aimed at 7-14 year-olds, but the pictures will be of use for all age-groups.
Includes CD ROM with slide shows on which pupils can write their own commentary and a video interview with artist Kate Neal.
"This is a beautiful and engaging piece of work, probably containing more material than could ever be used, and would be invaluable to anyone wishing to embark on the theme of creation in a series of lessons involving both Art and Literature. It will encourage creativity and thought in children in the 10-14 age bracket and is to be highly commended."
