This activity can be carried out as a class project, to produce
individual art works and studies, or it can be undertaken
as small groups of pupils working together.
The overall aim is to get young people thinking about the
area that they live in. The activities can involve language
(report writing and creative writing), Environmental studies,
drama or art and design. The activity is aimed mainly at
the 10 –14 age range (key stage 2), but could very
easily be adapted for other ages. This map is from Scanning
the City, a CD-Rom about public art in Glasgow
the idea is that young people can look at the public art
using school computersthen go and see the art for themselves.
