And here is Jenny’s poem, which Andrea’s artwork was based upon –

Imperfect Pearl

The last sorcerers

with earth air fire and water

sought to understand

the nature of life

blood phlegm black and yellow bile

four temperaments

humours to balance

through their waxing and waning

seasons of disease

heart liver spleen brain

spring summer autumn winter

how warm moist cold dry

sanguine choleric

melancholic phlegmatic

how hungry for change

feed them bleed them purge

make them take herbs drink potions

catch tears of a deer

the last sorcerers

understood that the four were

just the beginning

Teambuilding With Moodys

Projects and Events

Last Tuesday, Art in the Park worked with employers from Moodys by holding a teambuilding exercise at the Lensbury Hotel in Teddington. People were divided into groups of 13 and given 1 hour and a half to create a iconic European building. Each 14 groups were amongst 5 rooms holding at least 2 professional artists to work with and advise the teams. The challenge was made competitive with Art in the Park bags containing bars of local chocolate from South London’s Melange as prizes.
