Each year the Global Education & Skills Forum brings together world leaders from the public, private and social sectors seeking solutions to achieving education, equity and employment for all.
Over two days, 1,600 delegates at the Global Education & Skills Forum share, debate and shape new ways for education to transform our world.
An initiative of the Varkey Foundation, the Global Education & Skills Forum is an essential platform for collaboration and problem solving - taking ‘how it should be’ forward into innovative, multi-stakeholder ‘how do we get there?’
This year I have volunteered, with other art teachers from GEMS schools to deliver two days of Art workshops to the delegates. This event will be held at the Atlantis so at the moment we are trialing workshops that will be easy to deliver in a 50 minute time slot with limited access to cleaning and water.
Our brief/theme is Alice in Wonderland so all of our workshops have to be linked to this. While meeting about this I was also introduced to Sphero, http://www.sphero.com/education a mini robot controlled by a smart phone or tablet. I loved this idea and will definitely be pitching it to school when I get in tomorrow!
This idea uses thinners to transfer text from Alice in Wonderland onto a background. The idea is that it will be like a story board from the film and will go through different visuals for each scene.
We have added colour with ink and then when it is dry it is ready for the delegates to start transferring their image.
Due to lack of cleaning stations we have opted to use Carbon paper as a mode of mono printing our imagery to the page. We believe this is a strong outcome for minimal work. It also looks pretty good.
Delegates can then opt to use ink to add more colour to their image.
This idea is to create a 3D teapot using a pattern already created. This would involve a bit of collage using modge podge and delegates can put as much or as little detail onto their cup and saucer as they want.
Hello everybody, my name is Lyanne Fellows. I am a mum to an 8 year old boy and five year old boy and girl twins. Before moving back to the North East I worked in Dubai as a teacher of Art and Graphic Design and acting Head of Department. This was a move prompted by having twins and not wanting to give up my teaching job. Before having my twins I was head of art and a teacher trainer working for 6 years with a cluster of academies in the Midlands. I am now doing cover work in Newcastle upon Tyne and looking out for a position that is right for me to develop and share my vision with. I am really excited for another fun filled year.
