1. Do I have to live in a particular area to embark on a Wild in Art project?
No. Our projects are self-contained and available to nurseries, schools and youth organisations across the UK and beyond. If your school is in the vicinity of one of our large-scale projects we would love nothing more than for you to get in touch with us.
2. Do I need to employ an artist to carry out the project?
Our step-by-step creativity pack makes the process of designing and producing inspirational artworks straightforward. If you wish to employ an artist to work with your students, we can supply you with a list of our recommended artists.
3. After we finish our project can we display our sculpture outside?
Wild in Art specialises in creating models that stand up to everything the British weather can throw at them. Simple instructions on how to care for and protect your sculpture is available in the creativity pack.
4. Can I work with other schools to create a larger art exhibition?
Yes, of course, in fact we positively encourage it. Many of our schools have decided that they want to take their sculptures out of the classroom and into the community, and have worked with their cluster groups and partner organisations to create a big splash. If you decide that you would like to create a mini-exhibition in your city, town or village Wild in Art is on hand to provide you with the support and guidance you need.
5. How do we raise the money for a sculpture if it’s not in the budget?
Many schools have organised special days where the children are invited to come to school dressed as their favourite animal and have asked for people to sponsor them as part of a fund-raising project.
6. Can we display our work on the Wild in Art website?
We are always delighted to hear from you and are more than happy to chart your progress through the Wild in Art newsletter. If you have any news or images that you would like to share about your project please feel free to forward them to: [email protected]
