Magnificent Micklands Primary launch ArtLab @ Tate Exchange – Tuesday 23rd January 2017

Pupils from Micklands Primary launched our residency at Tate Exchange with bundles of energy, enthusiasm, creativity and exemplary teamwork.  The group went a walk round Tate Modern with ArtLab’s Tina O’Connell before arriving at Tate Exchange floor.

Below follows a photo and 3d model diary of their Tate Exchange complete with their videos.

Materials waiting for Micklands!

After learning about the greenscreen app, groups nominate roles (camera, costume, editor, performer, prop maker, script writer) and making begins.
