During a recent stroll along the seafront, I came across Art on the Pier, an exhibition of work including a series of displays by children from local schools. The kids had been briefed to creative selfies in a variety of ways with a variety of media: photography, collage, drawing, wax resist, clay, fabrics, buttons, wood and wire. The results are brilliant. Schools involved: The Angmering School; Bohunt School Worthing; Davison High for Girls; English Martyrs Primary; Chatsmore High; Sorrell Foundation; Bramber Primary; Slindon College; Downsbrook Primary.
The creators of this project are Nadia Chalk and Vanessa Breen, who are professional artists, designers and art educators. They set up a not-for-profit company called Creative Waves, to bring some inspiring public art into the Worthing and Adur community. On another part of the pier, I found a disply of photographs by local artists on another part of the pier.
