Responding to Art Through Heuristic Play

Kingfisher have been working closely with Gallery Oldham to create a series of art/play resources to help children explore the work of the land artist Richard Long. The children from the Ospreys initially went into the gallery to look and talk about Richard Long’s artwork and then they had the opportunity to play and create in the education suite. They explored natural materials, light box resources, sand and water, soil and flowers and shiny objects. The children made sculptures and explored balancing.
