Had the the great pleasure of delivering a John Blanke Live ! Workshop with Ebun Culwin at L'Esterre RC Primary School in L'Esterre, Carriacou one of the islands in the tri-island state of Grenade in the Caribbean.
While staying with friends in L'Esterre we were introduced to one of the teachers at the local primary. I couldn't help asking here if I could do Workshop at the school and to my delight she said yes! The workshop was arranged for 1pm Tues 2nd April.
All the staff and students made Ebun and I very welcome, even calming my nerves as I was unsure how the technology would work or could they understand my Liverpool accent. Needless to say the technology worked seamlessly and despite my accent the students seemed to understand me as the many hands that went up and their correct answers to my questions looking for feedback. Their attentiveness and enthusiasm made it a great experience.
We asked the pupils to finish their drawing with their individual "I imagined John Blanke as ....." statement. Here are a few examples: Jahleel imagined John Blanke as a hard working man and demands respect, Isaish and Edmund imagined John Blanke as a raster guy , David as a big tall man, Jaylonie as a brother so he will play with me, Renard simply as me, Renaldo as great fellow, Jahbori as my uncle . There were 51 contributions summed up in the word cloud below....
...and here are some random samples of how L'Esterre RC Primary School wonderfully imagined John Blanke...
Ebun and I would like to thank the staff and pupils of L'Esterre RC Primary School for their brilliant contribution to the John Blanke Project.
