Project theme and aims:

Artist Shona MacGillivray engaged with students of Carron National School to explore the theme of Greek gods and hero’s and heroines within the broader framework and context of the Covid Pandemic. What would a Greek hero do if they existed in the time of the pandemic? How might it feel to be a hero/heroine?  The students created a book of Greek poems to coincide with a series of beautifully crafted diorama’s inspired by the Greek Gods. The diorama’s were made using reclaimed timber, clay, paint and paper.
