Her process is an exploration of the use of line, colour, form, and movement to create striking and thought-provoking pieces. Through her work, she hopes to create an environment of healing and connection between people and nature. Heather Hansen’s work is a testament to the power of art and its ability to inspire and bring people together.

Warming Up

The children began by imitating each other’s movements, helping them warm up and get ready for the session.

The children then worked together in pairs to create artwork using their entire bodies and creating symmetrical drawings.

Kinetic Art

Kinetic art is an excellent way for children to express themselves and develop their physical and creative skills. Power Up Friday has been a great success, allowing the children to explore kinetic art in a fun, creative environment.
