Urban art group is inspired by Carla Ly
Carla Ly's work involves placing large 'band-aid's' (plasters) on broken and damaged areas of an urban landscape. The Tuesday art club discussed this message, made plasters from stickers and went out to areas around the campus at Rawlins to identify what was 'hurt'. This experiment proved a fascinating insight into the way the children felt about their environment and how "graffiti" can be about highlighting issues, not causing them.
