Schools Project

In the autumn of 2017 St. Johns Green Primary School worked on a series of cardboard murals inspired by the project. Led by accomplished artist Nicola Burrell and in partnership with Firstsite Gallery the programme had some fantastic results.

Nicola Burrell is a painter and sculptor based in Colchester. She has extensive experience of running public and community art projects and specialises in working with cardboard and concrete. Her paintings, often or urban subjects are built up reliefs using found materials and her site-specific public art sculptures are made in welded steel and coloured concrete.
