We are offering the opportunity for school learners to take part in the production of a new public artwork at Morriston Hospital and very much hope that your school will take part.

In partnership with Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board we are asking local learners to create colourful elements of the new artwork that will be sited on a section of hoardings around a new development at the centre of the hospital. We are looking for bold, colourful artworks that will make a vibrant and striking display, appealing to patients, staff and visitors, while the area is undergoing redevelopment.

To enable your school learners to take part, please print out the artwork templates below and invite your learners to colour in, draw on or paint on them either by hand or using a computer. The templates can be done at A4 or A3 as required. Please write the learner’s name and school on the back of each page they do. The look of the finished template artworks are up to each participant but the colourful designs at the bottom of this page could be used as inspiration. Why not ask your learners to think of themes inspired by where they live, their favourite places or things?

NB: This is open to all key stages

A selection of the finished template artworks will be chosen to develop the final mural, which will be scaled up, printed on to panels and fixed to the hoardings at Morriston Hospital. The artwork will be installed in July 2017. Each school which has designs selected will be invited to the hospital to celebrate the results and will be credited on the Art Across The City website and related publicity material.

The deadline for finished artworks to be returned to us is Monday May 22nd, please send by post to: Art Across The City, PO Box 127, Swansea SA3 9BF

or by email to info@artacrossthecity.com

This is a great opportunity for your learners to be involved in making an exciting public artwork which will in turn benefit local people who use Morriston Hospital. We hope you will be interested in participating and we look forward to receiving your artworks.
