Disabled artists week

 

This week we have been learning about the challenges disabled artists face. In Year 4 we have focused on the foot and mouth artist, Peter Longstaff. Unfortunately, Peter was born without arms due to his mother being treated with a medicine called thalidomide during her pregnancy. However, Peter has never let it hold him back and uses his right foot as we would use our right hand (or left if you are left-handed!). In fact, for twenty years he was a pig farmer, doing all the jobs required using his feet, including driving a tractor! When pig farming became more financially difficult, he left the career and turned to his hobby of art, finding that he was actually really talented. He now works for the MFPA (the UK Mouth and Foot Painting Artists) designing Christmas cards. He also produces lots of pieces of art focusing on nature, as he loves the beauty of nature. It is this focus which we have used in our paintings, first attempting to paint the inside of a flower outline using our mouths to control the paintbrush. Then we sketched our own flowers and painted them using our hands, a task all of the children found much easier than the first one! See below for pictures of some of the art we produced.
