Wed 9th May 2018 : Impressive Artistic 'Feet'!
Mead pupils recently tried out a unique method of painting and learnt an important message about the power of having a positive attitude to overcome hurdles.
Inspired by world-renowned artist Tom Yendell who paints using his lips, tongue, teeth, head and feet to master different brush strokes, the children had a go at painting their own pictures using only their feet and mouths.
Tom Yendell was born without arms, a birth defect caused by Thalidomide and has produced over 500 works, many of which have appeared on cards and wrapping paper.
The artist, who lives in Hampshire, said "If you don't have the use of your hands, your feet and mouth are naturally the next best things. You can use a combination of body parts - teeth, tongue, lips, the whole of your head and your feet - to perform different strokes". He also said that he hopes his "artwork proves that nothing is too big a hurdle in life".
Mrs Ovenden who lead the activity as part of Nature Club was very impressed with the results and commented, "The children were amazed at how much easier it was to do than they had imagined. They were delighted with what they managed to produce, as was I!"
