Paediatric Ward Collages
As one of a regular series of volunteer events in the community that Art in the Park organise and deliver, artists Jill Newman and Andrea Sinclair worked with 100 volunteers from the History Channel at BSkyB over two weeks in Spring 2010.
The aim of this project was to create a series of artwork based on a variety of chosen themes to brighten up the Paediatric Ward at West Middlesex University Hospital. The artwork was created in a layered collaging method, part-digital and part using a variety of drawing, photography and painting techniques. The intention was to end up with slightly ambiguous, open-ended artwork, which could hold interest and offer new things to discover over a number of visits to the ward. Young patients and staff from the ward also participated.
