CELEBRATE THE DIVERSITY OF YOUR CITY
The Teater Vol Stoele (Theatre of Chairs) project captures the multifaceted urban experiences of Pretoria as encountered by individual citizens.
Learners were instructed to illustrate a topic pertaining to the city of Pretoria on a chair. Topics included historic buildings and figures as well as the diverse experience of being in the CBD today. Learners personalised their chairs by painting an object on the chair seat in a tromp l’œil manner.
This project formed part of a bigger initiative to couple high school learners with their city through the art curriculum.
