A NEW multi-sensory project is being displayed at Trowbridge’s Larkrise Special School to provide high quality creative and sensory experiences for children with profound or multiple disabilities.

The project, which is themed around earth, was part of a collaboration between the school, which supports children with severe learning difficulties, and The Roche Court Educational Trust.

Installations occur three times a year within a dome, providing a sensory environment that is safe to explore by pupils to encourage them to use art as a way for them to play and learn.

For the first time, young artists from Larkrise School, The Mead Community Primary School and South Wiltshire Mencap group Four&More have also made artworks to be shown as part of the installation.

Becky Churchill, Larkrise School’s artist in residence, said: “The project is about visual art and it is the first time we have joined together with The Mead and Four&More, which was great.

“It allows everyone in our school, whatever ability, to explore modern and contemporary art in a sensory way. The drums were a part of the musical element of our earth installation and the pupils get so much from it.

The installation has been created with financial support from Trowbridge Town Council, Trowbridge Area Board, Asda, Felicity Hill and Casper’s Cafe at Warminster Train Station.
