Word of Mouth was developed in partnership with Turtle Key Arts, working with students from Hillingdon School, which is an autism-specialist school in West London.
First of all the students worked with the talented poet Cheryl Moskowitz, exploring a range of writing techniques and means of expressing them.
With a portfolio of poems to hand, the students then visited Paddington Arts for a week-long digital media project where they illustrated their written work to create animated films. The students used a range of techniques including hand-drawn illustration and digitising these to then create designs with photoshop.
Some example of the visual poems can be seen here:
