The Multi Sensory Art Project is a collaboration between The Roche Court Educational Trust and Larkrise School, Trowbridge to provide creative and sensory experiences for children with profound and multiple learning disabilities.
Art installations are created in the school and are an opportunity for the students and staff to experience, react and respond within these environments, allowing individual expression, communication and very early play skills.
The project reaches out into the wider community with artists leading multi-sensory visits and workshops for schools and groups with learning difficulties and disabilities at Roche Court Sculpture Park near Salisbury. We welcome all participants to experience the installation by booking a visit with the Roche Court Educational Trust Team.
Larkrise School, Trowbridge | Monday 8 – Friday 12 July 2019
This year is the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, something which many believed would never happen. Space travel, the stars and the moon have inspired stories, myths, legends, art and artefacts throughout time and across cultures.
Lunar Fantasy is informed by artists who make places and create portals to other worlds, transforming the everyday into something fantastic. Based on first-hand experience of sculptures and mixed media art by acclaimed artists exhibiting at the Roche Court Sculpture Park near Salisbury, our team of talented multi-sensory artists have led visits and workshops at Roche Court, workshops in schools and with groups to create this fantastical installation. Our team will also facilitate interactions during the week of 8-12 July while the installation is at Larkrise School.
The project is designed to bring modern and contemporary art to those who are least likely to access it. The installation is available to tour to other schools and group venues and our team of multi-sensory artists are available to run workshops. We encourage all who encounter the installation to explore, experience and imagine art through all the senses.
The Multi Sensory Art Project is very grateful to all who fund and support it, with a special thank you this year to Wiltshire Community Foundation.
