RIVERVIEW STATE SCHOOL – OUR STORY ART PROJECT
Riverview State School is a multicultural primary school located in Ipswich, Queensland. In 2012 Lois Randall Creative Consulting worked with the school to develop partnerships and write the successful funding application to Arts Queensland for an Artist In Residence project designed as an inclusive approach to develop literacy.
The Story Art project was undertaken by students and teachers from Riverview State School, with resident Author and Illustrator Narelle Oliver, resident story teller Daryll Bellingham, and Primary Arts Network Ipswich. The students collected, created, expressed and recorded stories in the form of individual and collectively created artist books, and oral story telling. The project lead to a permanent arts workshop and innovative literacy program in the school.
