KIDD decor

Scene decoration for the KIDD days in Almere.

Group 8 from five different schools in Almere presented on three different days in May what they learnt from the learntrack Art is Closer than you Think. The children started the days with masterclasses given by professional artists divided into four different disciplines; creative, architecture, theatre and dance. The students designed their own exhibition on special made exhibition pieces in the afternoon. Each night the students presented their artworks to their parents.

There are five elements in totaal. Each element is differentiated by discipline through color and form. There is also an information stand. All the objects are taken down for reuse next year.

Special thanks to BonteHond for the assignement, Tessa Haan for the organisation, City theatre Almere for help with building, B-original for providing the workspace and thanks to all artists who made art with the children to place on and around the objects.

Art is Closer than you Think is an ongoing learntrack culture education where children can reflect on their own environment through theatre and fine arts.

Art is Closer than you Think is an initiative by BonteHond and Museum The Paviljoens and made possible by The Municipality of Almere and Foundation for Culture participation.
In cooperation with: CASLA, Department of Archeology Almere and the Almeerse Schools Group.
