Ben Jonson school kids jump for joy
School children from Ben Jonson school got their first artistic debut recently as their Picasso inspired artwork was put up on site boundary signage around the Ocean Estate.
The artwork which runs along Essian St will be in place for up to 12 months as the 800 new homes take shape as part of the Ocean Estate regeneration programme.
To celebrate the diverse range of people living on the estate in which most call home, the children from Ben Jonson produced a collage of their work representing their culture and their community.
Ben Jonson school art teacher Prenash Desai said “This has been an amazing experience and the young artists behind the magnificent artwork are so pleased and proud to get their work debuted. It’s so refreshing to see and it definitely brightens up the area. I’d like to thank all the project partners who are part of the regeneration programme for this opportunity.”
East Thames Resident Involvement manager Hitesh Mistry said: “The artwork looks fantastic and it’s great to see it all come to life. The kids have done a great job and I’d like to thank them for all their hard work.”
The Ocean regeneration is being delivered in partnership with the East Thames consortium, London Borough of Tower Hamlets and the Bellway Homes.
