I heart words
Here's a lovely project I did a while ago (June last year, in fact) that I only just photographed.
My kids' school asked me if I knew anyone able to do some sign writing. Being the intrepid soul that I am, I said (in the manner of Catherine Tate) "I can do that!".
They wanted the school "heart" words painted on a breezeway to complement a group project being created by the Art teacher (which looks gorgeous). But, not one to be satisfied with making it straight forward (and wanting to make it an artpiece not just a signwriting job) I asked the school to collect the school words handwritten by students. I then went through and picked out one of each word, projected them on the wall and painted them in.
Although it was freezing work - breezeway in winter - hello! - it was a really positive project. The kids know they are valued in that school and the words they have chosen to pursue are truly reflected in the community there. It's great to have it up on the wall for all to see.
