Towering ideas as Southsea school pupils take on challenge

Have your say

PORTSMOUTH High School is appealing to artistic residents to help launch a community art project for charity.

The project ‘Emotions’ will bring together 500 individually crafted tiles in an installation art piece to be displayed at Portsmouth Cathedral from April 28 until May 5, and around the city.

Each of the 500 blank tiles should be illustrated according to the emotions hope, joy, love, peace, friendship, strength, weakness, resistance, envy, sorrow, loneliness and despair.

All proceeds will go to Help for Heroes, Marie Cure Cancer Care and The Rowans Hospice.

Graeme Field, head of innovation at the school, said: ‘We want as many artists and community groups as possible to get involved.’

Blank tiles can be collected from the school reception. Completed tiles must be returned by Saturday, April 2. For more visit
