Art in the Physic Garden, Petersfield

Henry Adams is delighted to sponsor a special exhibition in the Physic Garden created by the children of Petersfield Infant School with the direction of freelance artist and theatre designer, Vicki Ostersen. Every one of the 360 pupils from the school chose 2 stones to decorate, one with a self-portrait and the other painted with a design of their choice using a restricted colour pallet. Vicki masterminded the initiative to celebrate every child’s individual talent contributing towards a whole project, “Every child’s creation is included and now all the stones are together in the garden they create a vibrant, powerful display that showcases the brilliant creativity of young people.”


Craig Towersey and Tracey Killing, staff from Henry Adams Petersfield and Dee Tickner our Community Liaison Coordinator were pleased to be invited to the opening day and see the infant children visiting their colourful creation. Throughout the week all the children will be brought to the garden by the school to see their work in place. Craig adds, “ I was delighted to see the superb efforts of the children from Petersfield Infants School who have made a colourful and eye catching display here at the Physic Garden. It’s great to see such creativity in such young children.”

The exhibition will remain in situ until Friday, April 21st so do go along and enjoy this creative display by the young children of Petersfield, admission is free. At the end of the project the stones will be collected and given back to the children to keep.
