Rainforest Artwork

16th July 2019

All our children are between the ages of 2 and 19, Villa Real School is a special school for people with severe or profound learning difficulties, many also have autism or associated physical difficulties, sensory impairments including severe visual impairment, complex physical difficulties / motor function disorders etc so cannot control their head or develop fine motor skills. All of the work is therefore below the appropriate standard for the norm of their age but they have tried really hard in their art work. They have followed your progress watching on interactive whiteboards and we had a whole school assembly looking at the work of John Dyer and Nixiwaka, looking at videos of your project. They accompanied the tribal singers and musicians with guitars on you tube, looked at climate change and met a rainforest tortoise who came around the classes to show them the animals that may lose their habitat. Please would you consider our art work even though it does not reflect age appropriate skills. I am also unable to include their surnames due to data protection around vulnerable young people.
