ICTArtsMusic - Jubilee gems - Creative commemoration

18th May 2012 at 01:00

Children's creativity has been at the heart of Diamond Jubilee celebrations, with 10-year-old Katherine Dewar's drawing being selected as the Queen's official emblem. And last month a giant image of the Queen, made up of the portraits of 200,000 children, was projected on to Buckingham Palace over two evenings. Try these ideas to inspire pupils to create their own commemorative artwork.

Plates and mosaics

Education Group organises Jubilee workshops in which pupils aged 4-13 can design a commemorative plate or emblem mosaic. Book online at www.educationgroup.co.ukworkshopsqueens-jubilee

Victoria's etchings

Encourage creativity with a visit to the Royal Art by Royal Artists exhibition at the Belgravia Gallery in London, which includes etchings by Queen Victoria, landscapes by Prince Charles and Keith Haynes' God Save The Queen Union Jack - a tribute to both the monarch and the Sex Pistols song. The exhibition runs until 8 June.
