Stone Child by Mhairi Corr : Schools resource

Mhairi Corr’s challenging exhibition is based on the theme of The Abandoned Child Archetype.  Nineteen paper pulp characters navigating their way over rocky ground. A story waiting to be told. All these children have something in common. They have been thrown or have fallen from the nest and are left to find their own way without guidance.

Our school’s gallery pack gives suggested activities to explore the themes with your class in a positive way.  It will help you meet some of the Curriculum for Excellence Experiences and Outcomes for Health and Wellbeing as well as the Expressive Arts.  Download the pdf pack :
