I love how this space is ever-evolving & intertwined with the lessons kids are studying. Thanks for sharing!

What Debi said :) It is not only a way of covering an ugly fence but a way of making their mark on the environment and sharing their projects and adding layers of interests that change over time. Beautiful!

A great range of ideas, and good to see the pictures!
Here's another example of a recent "boring fence" makeover I thought you'd enjoy!

Yes Debi - I think this is the beauty of this project.

David - thanks for the link - I hopped right over and had a look and thoroughly recommend others do the same. Really simple and the art and maths potential...sigh! I'm in teaching heaven!

I love your fence ideas. Thanks for posting on our blog. I am going to make sure all our teachers see this as we have some pretty horrid fences too. Brilliant thinking, well done. Sheila Laing, Headteacher Campie PS.

Thanks for sharing a creative to get your student to create and install their artwork. What a lovely problem-solving exercise!

I am working on a project with a group of students from Otari School in New Zealand, we are in the process of turning a boring fence in to a creative and exciting resource. So it is good to see others using their fences in creative ways, more information about the students work at
