Event
Workshop

A creative practical workshop for young people A interdisciplinary practical workshop for primary school children from the ages of 9-12.

The group will look at some of our commonly discarded household materials, studying their shape, colour, texture and original functions e.g. plastic bags, packaging, crisp packets,plastic bottles etc. We will then explore some examples of artists work that has been created using similar materials. They will then make their own piece of art using similar materials provided. The type of art they choose to make that is inspired by the workshop will be varied from building sculpture,drawing,creative writing or dance and movement. The themes of recycling, respecting our environment and minimising waste will run throughout whilst also exploring what Art can be and how to spot it in our everyday lives.

Aims / outcomes – To explore making and craft using a variety of materials whilst also educating children on the processes of recycling in a fun and comfortable environment. To explore making and craft using a variety of materials whilst also educating children on the processes of recycling in a fun and comfortable environment. To encourage working on creative ideas in a group and to be imaginative with simple objects and shapes. To introduce young children to Artists and what they make out with traditional methods of fine art.

The lead artist and teaching team will work energetically and sensitively with the group so all participants enjoy the experience and take away not only a finished artwork but hopefully leave enthused to do similar activities at home and with friends. The workshop will be very well structured and have a good selection of materials to works with so that children are stimulated sufficiently to keep and interest in the activities.

The workshop is designed for children ages 9-12.

The teaching staff will provide the materials needed for workshops and Aprons for children. There will also be light refreshments for children and parents. Parents of younger children are welcome to stay for the duration of the workshop if they wish. The exhibition space is in the centre of town so there are also plenty of shops and cafes in the surrounding area.

The workshops are on a sign up basis and open to all children interested in taking part.

Accessibility – There is excellent accessibility within the building , elevators and disabled access to all floors. There is a toilet on level 4-one floor down from the exhibition space. Parking is limited but there is very good public transport in the area.
