Imaginosity (2018 - 2019), which has been led by artist Karen Andrew, has offered a range of wonderful experiences which have developed the children in our school as individuals, as a group, and as part of Mill Hill Community Primary School as a whole.  Each section of the project has had a different focus and it has been exciting to see the imagination and creativity develop.

  • Creative journals – these allowed children to be imaginative, creative and proud of themselves as individuals
  • Milk carton birds – introduced the idea that the ordinary could become the extraordinary with a riot of colour, materials and design
  • Life maps – encouraged an exploration of the special things about ourselves that make us unique
  • Match box puppets – upcycling an everyday item to create a puppet to give a voice to our maps as we shared them with others
  • Banners – sections of our maps sewn together as banners so we could celebrate our place within our school houses
  • Cardboard samples – stripping back art to one material and colour so we can see how creative we can be without hiding behind colours
  • Feathers – transferring skills from our samples to create a unique element which will become part of a whole
  • Bird sculpture – a celebration of one material, 156 children and the importance of each individual within the school as a whole

Each element of the project has been led by Karen who has trained a group of ‘ambassadors’.  These ambassadors, who would not normally necessarily take a leadership role, have developed a huge number of skills during the project and each of them has grown in confidence.  As ambassadors they have taught new skills to the rest of school (including the adults!) in the process making sure that everyone in Mill Hill has felt success.  At Mill Hill we aim to make every child feel that they can be proud of who they are and have aspirations for the future.  This project has allowed those aims to flourish and every child and adult within the school has gained something special form their involvement – Imaginosity.
