Our young people from Hill House have been busy in the art room, creating a beautiful sculpture that they have submitted to the renowned Saatchi Gallery in London.
For this sculpture, the young people were inspired by Einsten’s proverb – “Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
Using the proverb and the sculpture created, is a direct reflection of the ethos of the school. Taking an eclectic approach to education to the meet all the young people’s very special individual needs. Using these methods, our young people are able to harness their own intrinsic genius.
The beautiful sculpture was created with a lot of time and effort, and represents their instinctual creativity in its purest form. The tree fish stands as a metaphor for equal opportunities – a way of thinking that one’s disabilities are dispelled by one’s creative ambitions!
We are thrilled to be sharing this news and wish our young people all the best for their entry to the Saatchi Gallery!
