This was a great mass-participation Pixel Portrait with Fairfield Primary School in Cockermouth.

It was commissioned by Kirkgate Arts & Heritage as part of I Am Dorothy, a programme supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund , marking 250 years since the birth of Dorothy Wordsworth.

The children were so excited to see the picture come together, square by little sticky-square, there was even football-style whooping and dancing from Y6 Team Purple!

As we were working with fours classes separately, we decided to create four separate versions of the portrait, each a different base colour. The four pictures combined to form a giant Warhol-style artwork.

You know it's all over when the victorian lady jumps the stool.
