Art of the Game – Day One

On this beautiful summers day artist Sarah Carne began our children’s art course by involving them in games to get us making decisions and choices.

This will form the basis for a giant game, which is to be about decision making, not chance and competition.DSC_0025 DSC_0026 These are some of the things that make us happy and healthyDSC_0028 DSC_0029 DSC_0030 DSC_0031 DSC_0032 DSC_0033 DSC_0044 DSC_0050 DSC_0052 We then shared our ideas as a group and used them to play a second game of choices.DSC_0056 DSC_0057 DSC_0063 DSC_0066Strawberries in chocolate or bananas in honey – which way do you go?

We then went back to the ideas behind the game and discussed in our groups what we would like to change – at home, school and in the world.  


We had to agree, prioritise then share with everyone.DSC_0187


It was surprising how much we all had in common…..it seems brussell sprouts are one of the worlds greatest problems – second only to ridding the world of money and world peace!


We had such a productive and enjoyable day! Hope you all sleep well and come bursting with ideas to put the game together tomorrow!
