Arthog Outdoor Education Centre 6.5 x 1.8 metres
This painting was commissioned by Arthog Outdoor Education Centre. The brief was to represent the activities that the children take part in at the site, as well as the local scenery and wildlife.
The theme of the design is based around the idea of journeys. The journey that the children make from their homes in Telford to the centre in Snowdonia, represented by the rolling maps. The journeys they make whilst at the centre, represented by the changing landscapes. And the personal journey they make in self-development through learning how to work with each other as a team, how to support each other in taking on new challenges and experiences and letting their confidence grow.The phrase ‘Discover, Inspire, Achieve’ is the existing motto of the Arthog centre.
