The William Hogarth School opened in October 2001 and is sited in the building of the old Hogarth Primary School. Eager not to lose any connections with Hogarth, a famous Chiswick resident, artist and philanthropist, the school has reflected the link in their school logo, a paint palette and naming each class after a famous painter. They place special value on artistic and creative activities.
These four mosaic panels are displayed together on a prominent wall on the main staircase in the school.
I worked closely with four groups of year 5/6 children on all stages of the mosaic project, including initial ideas and design workshops.
Younger children also learned about mosaic and contributed to the mosaic panel borders.
