Welcome to www.12days.net

www.12days.net is the culmination of the 12 Days Project and showcases the work of children from one secondary, one junior, one infant and five primary schools in South Bristol.

Using the traditional song The Twelve Days of Christmas as their inspiration, the pupils have created twelve days of web art that combine digital artworks, paintings, illustrations, sculpture and animations.

On each day between December 26th 2000 and January 6th 2001, a new piece of artwork becomes available, one for each of the Twelve Days of Christmas.

Educational Context

The 12 Days Project was a unique Art and ICT collaborative project which introduced 15 teachers and over 400 pupils to web art and which explored the educational possibilities of the web as an artistic medium.

The initial stage involved guided research to explore artwork that had been designed to use the web's distinct characteristics as an artistic medium. Teachers were then able to plan and explain concepts for the web art that their pupils were to produce.

During the Summer term the schools created art resources for their chosen theme from the Twelve Days of Christmas. In the Autumn term, the teachers had training on web building and digital production techniques. The resources were then digitised and the concepts realised to form www.12days.net.
