Year Sixback to the paintings
Minuit Chanson , Edward Burra 1931

The children looked at paintings by Edward Burra and were interested in his life and travels. The painting chosen had great poses which these older children enjoyed. They painted a wonderful backdrop approximately 3.5 x 5 metres and collected together various costumes for the key characters in the painting. In the end three photographs were taken with different children posing each time.

The children later looked at Burra's other paintings, some of which they copied in their own style.
