Link Association Summer Fair – Saturday 29th June – 12.00pm-3.00pm.   

We hope you are able to come along and join in the fun at our annual largest fundraiser.

Colourscape Workshop

The Link Secondary School welcomed Colourscape to their school last week and invited pupils from The Link Primary School to join them. Visual sound artist, David Stevens, transformed a classroom into a creative workshop full of colour, light and sound.

During the workshops, pupils entered into the truly interactive sensory space and learnt about colour and light in the most practical way – by observation and discovery.

The children were captivated by touch activated sensors that made lights change colour, whilst others generated a range of sounds from a traditional orchestra to more experimental dins. They were delighted by a sensor that recorded their voices and turned words into beautiful musical arrangements.

The intensity of the colours changing coupled with the amazing soundtrack (created by the children) provided a truly creative space where pupils were happy to freely explore sound and movement. It was a truly unique experience.

 

 

We cannot thank you enough for all the time and effort you have put into our son. You are amazing and we appreciate everything you have done for us as a family.
